Charlie William Henry Savage (born 2 May 2003) is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Manchester United. He has represented Wales at various youth international levels and is the son of former Welsh international Robbie Savage.
A central midfielder like his father, Savage is comfortable both defending and going forward. Despite the similarities, Savage has said that he does not see the likeness, stating that he is more of a technical, ball playing midfielder, rather than a tenacious player like his father was. His father, Robbie Savage says Charlie is “great at passing through the lines” and one of the “fittest players at Manchester United”.
