An emotional Robbie Savage had the honor of announcing his son’s arrival on the pitch when Charlie Savage made his Manchester United debut.
Savage, 18, was named on the bench against the Young Boys and came on in the last five minutes.
Savage was part of BT Sport’s commentary team for the senior match and admitted he was terrified.
As the seconds ticked away with his lad, Savage joked: “Someone kicks the ball out.”
Savage then announced the debut of his son, proudly telling the audience: “Coming in for Man Utd, Charlie Savage for Juan Mata.
“I never believed I’d ever say these words to Manchester United. What a proud day after all the hard work for my boy.
“What a day for me, his mom, Nanna, his grandparents but most importantly Charlie Savage for that boy.
“So proud of him, it’s just an amazing moment for him – to be a World Cup winner.
