Former Wales international Robbie Savage signed for the club in November 2019. He signed because he "wants to help young players to get back into football after they have been released by a club". His last professional game had been in May 2011.
Robbie Savage joined United in 1993 and can be seen in pictures of the class of 92. but he never got to play in the first team as he was released in 1994 so does not appear in the Wikipedia list of united players.
I wenr to Main Road to see Manchester City play Leister City with my son Adam, it was our only visit to Main Road, That day Savage was the outstanding player on the pitch - he was everywhere and ran the show.
I have often wondered why he was release as David Viollet was in 1962.
Robbie made his mark as a personality as much as a player and his return to lower league football with Stockport Town 8 years after his retirement was a nobel act.
