Charlie Savage Has Been Promoted To First-Team Training By Erik Ten Hag. The 19-year-old – who is the son of Robbie Savage – has one senior appearance for the Red Devils under his belt after being handed his debut by Ralf Rangnick.

Savage came on for the final minute of a Champions League group-stage draw with BSC Young Boys and also made the bench against Crystal Palace on the final day of the 2021-22 Premier League season.

The Wales youth international has since dropped back down to youth level as he continues to learn his trade, and he has one goal in six Premier League 2 appearances so far this season.

Savage is yet to make Ten Hag’s squad in the Premier League or Champions League this season, but the teenager is seemingly making strong progress towards earning a senior berth.

Manchester United Under-21s are yet to win a league game this term and recorded their fourth draw on the bounce against West Ham United last time out, with Savage only playing 45 minutes.

The report adds that Ten Hag asked Savage to join him for first-team training at half time, which led to his early withdrawal in the contest at the Under-21s winless run continued.

Savage has come through the youth ranks at Man United and made 26 appearances for the club’s Under-18s, scoring three goals and providing seven assists from midfield.

Since being promoted to Under-21 level, the Welsh starlet has racked up three goals and two assists in 32 outings in all tournaments, scoring his first goal of the 2022-23 season against Crystal Palace in August.

Under-21s head coach Mark Dempsey welcomed the presence of Ten Hag to Altrincham for the game with the Eagles, telling the publication: “It’s wonderful. It’s great for everyone concerned.

“I think one or two of our players went under if I’m honest, thinking the manager was here, but they have to deal with that. It’s good for him to come and see us.

“It’s healthy for everyone at the football club. It shows that he’s interested, for the boys it’s motivational. Without naming them, every player that has been with them [first-team] has come back with more belief, more energy.

“You can see that they’ve learned certain things. Of course, there’s nothing better than working with those players, they are your role models are your benchmark you know you’ve got to get to. You only ever improve by being challenged.”

Man United will return from the international break with a Premier League clash against bitter rivals Manchester City on October 2 following the postponement of their battle with Leeds United.
