Robbie Savage could have been just another Manchester United
reject. Instead, he used the Old Trafford scrapheap as a
springboard to become one of the most instantly recognizable
footballers in the Premier League, despite being told by Sir Alex
Ferguson he was not good enough to stay in the class of '92
alongside David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, and
Gary Neville. For the last 16 years, Savage has carved out a
reputation as a hard man and wind-up merchant with an unerring
ability to grab a headline. From deliberately getting Tottenham's
Justin Edinburgh sent off in a Wembley Cup final to the
"Jobbiegate" row with referee Graham Poll and the bust-ups with
John Toshack, Rio Ferdinand, Graeme Souness, and Paul Jewell, the
list is endless. Yet numerous footballing legends will testify to
the skill of the midfielder, who has starred for Crewe, Leicester,
Birmingham, Blackburn, and Derby and won 39 international caps for
Wales. Behind the long blond hair, the Armani tattoo and the
flamboyant cars, Savage has always been the heartbeat of his team.
"Savage " provides a unique insight into the extraordinary life of
an elite sportsman, a colorful character and loving family man.
Love him or loathe him, Robbie Savage's story is a remarkable
