Robbie Savage had a brilliant reaction to his son, Charlie, performing a 'Maradona turn' on Mohamed Salah during Manchester United's big win over Liverpool.

​Charlie, 19, made a second-half cameo in his side's 4-0 pre-season victory against Liverpool on Tuesday.

The budding talent looked calm and assured on the ball in midfield and even produced a moment of magic. 

The youngster got away from Salah by doing a 'Maradona turn', which his father loved. 

Robbie delivered a glowing assessment of his son's showing against Liverpool, hilariously tweeting: "So so proud @charliesavage84, thought you were terrific, a Maradona turn on edge of your own box. Who did you get that from​. Finally a Savage that can play."

In another tweet, he wrote: "Love to see it​. Confident and brave on edge of your own box against the best player in Premier League Mohamed Salah."​

​Robbie wasn't the only person speaking highly of Charlie as Andy Cole also hailed the player's showing in Thailand. 

"I was impressed with the young boy being given the opportunity and I thought he did really well," he said on MUTV. "He was playing against Liverpool.

"I know he has done it when he was against the kids, but this is pre-season and it gives you the chance to try and get to where you want. I thought he did really well when he came on.

"The higher you go in midfield, you have got to keep the ball and he did exactly that today."

Charlie made his first-team debut for Man United in the Champions League against Young Boys last season. 

And he was named on the bench for a Premier League matchday squad against Crystal Palace. 

He could play a role under Erik ten Hag ahead of the new season if he continues to impress in pre-season.
