Sav Set To Retire, Murph Continues On

Robbie Savage has announced his intention to retire from the game at the end of the season after over 15 years in the professional game.

Sav began his career back in 1994 at Gresty Road after switching from Man Utd, whom he originally left the Alex's youth system for as a youngster, following his release from their youth team which included David Beckham.

He went on to make nearly 100 starts for the Alex before leaving under a cloud after seeking a move to Leicester City. It saw him left out of the team to face Brentford back on promotion day 1997 before his 400,000 move to Martin O'Neill's side.

He has since notched up over 500 starts in his career for Leicester, Birmingham, Blackburn, Derby and Brighton with the majority of those coming in the Premiership.

He also earned 39 caps for the Wales senior team before retiring from international football in 2005 following a fall out with then manager John Toshack.

At 36 he retires from the game having turned down an offer from MLS side Vancouver Whitecaps to finish his career with the Canadian club. He's now looking to further his media career and annoy the hell out of the viewing public.

Meanwhile, his former Alex team mate Danny Murphy keeps going strong in the Premiership. Murph hasn't looked back since his brief loan return to Gresty Road in 1999. Over 500 Premier League apps later, Murphy this week extended his stay at Fulham by another year.

Still time for the 33 year old to return to Gresty and earn himself a managers job yet.... right?
