Robbie Savage's Perfect Response To Cristiano Ronaldo Talking To His Son, Charlie, In Training
| Last updated
Robbie Savage had the best response to his son, Charlie, talking to Cristiano Ronaldo in Manchester United training.
The Red Devils take on Crystal Palace in their final Premier League game of the season on Sunday afternoon.
United are currently sixth in the table and victory at Selhurst Park will ensure Europa League qualification.
Interim manager Ralf Rangnick could opt to play a few youngsters however, and Savage could be in line to feature.
The 19-year-old made his first-team debut as a substitute in December's 1-1 draw with Young Boys and has been at Carrington this week.
Footage of Savage chatting to five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo has emerged and his dad had something to say about it.
He tweeted alongside the clip: "Your dad used to kick me," with a laughing emoji.

Savage Sr. was also in United's academy as a youngster but never played for the club.
He'd go on to forge a successful career in the English top-flight however and came up against Ronaldo a number of times during his first stint at Old Trafford.
Unsurprisingly, he did indeed use to kick the Portugal international a fair bit.
Savage was on commentary for BT Sport when Charlie took to the field just before Christmas.
The Wales youth international replaced Juan Mata in the 89th minute and came on alongside close friend Zidane Iqbal.
Prior to kick-off, his dad emotionally told viewers: "I'm starting to tear up Jake, what the boy has achieved... Charlie Savage has achieved so much in his young life.
"He's never been top of the group, he's always had to meet targets.
"Every two years when he was on the borderline of being let go, his application, his work ethic, his desire, he's humble. That has got him to where he's got.
"As a father, when I'm standing on the sidelines, people automatically think Charlie is going to be like his dad but he's not like me, he's his own player. What he's achieved in his young life, I'm absolutely delighted."
"Coming on for Man Utd, Charlie Savage for Juan Mata..."— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) December 8, 2021
"Wow, I never believed I'd say those words, what a proud day!"

Unlike his dad, who was energetic and enjoyed flying into challenges, Savage is regarded as a technical midfielder who enjoys being on the ball.
