Robbie Savage Asks Roy Keane “Whaaaatsuuuup?” After Funniest Revelation From Ex-United Man’s Book

Robbie Savage Asks Roy Keane “Whaaaatsuuuup?” After Funniest Revelation From Ex-United Man’s Book

Robbie Savage had a hilarious response to a story he features in inside Roy Keane‘s new autobiography.

The Aston Villa and Ireland No2 has dominated headlines today with extracts emerging from his forthcoming book The Second Half.

As well as slamming former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, Keano had strong words for Ellis Short, Pablo Counago and… Abba.

But the funniest story regards former Crewe, Leicester, Birmingham, Blackburn and Derby man Savage.

Keane wrote:

“I rang Mark Hughes. Robbie [Savage] wasn’t in the Blackburn team and I asked Mark if we could try to arrange a deal.

“Sparky said: ‘Yeah, yeah, he’s lost his way here but he could still do a job for you.’

“Robbie’s legs were going a bit but I thought he might come up to us [at Sunderland], with his long hair, and give us a lift – the way Yorkie [Dwight Yorke] had, a big personality in the dressing room.

“Sparky gave me permission to give him a call. So I got Robbie’s mobile number and rang him. It went to his voicemail: ‘Hi, it’s Robbie – whazzup!’ like the Budweiser ad.

“I never called him back. I thought: ‘I can’t be fucking signing that.’”

If that wasn’t already entertaining enough then Savage’s response takes it to a new level. Fair play, Robbie. You might not be everyone’s cup of tea – but you’re certainly ours.
