[Robbie Savage, who played alongside Speed for Wales on many occasions] The world has lost a great man in Gary speed I’m devastated spoke to him yesterday morning why ! Why. Why !! I’ll miss him so much x He come to watch strictly 3/4 weeks ago I high fived him in the front row he loved the show ,he loved life he loved his family ! Devastated.
I spoke to him yesterday and he was in high spirits. I just can’t believe it. He was my mate and he’s gone. He’s left two gorgeous kids behind. Gary was [a professional]. He was one of the fittest guys. He looked after his body. He was a great team-mate, a great manager. He was joking yesterday [about Robbie being on Strictly Come Dancing], saying don’t get a two off [judge] Craig [Revel Horwood].

[Robbie Savage defends McTominay from Paul Parker who says Scott McTominay is no more than a modern-day Robbie Savage that runs around trying to kick people] Nonsense, I wasn’t good enough for United. He’s proven he can get into team, hold his place down, be one of United’s best players this season and missed when injured!

[Robbie Savage says Gareth Bale is the most undervalued player of the last 20 years] I’m going to say it’s Gareth Bale at Real Madrid. He’s scored 105 goals in all competitions, 13 trophies, three goals in Champions League finals, including the spectacular overhead kick against Liverpool. He’s also got one in a penalty shootout. Compare that to the great Zinedine Zidane, 49 goals, six trophies - that worldie against Bayer Leverkusen, his only goal in a Champions League final - but it was a worldie. Luis Figo, 56 goals, seven trophies and then the great Ronaldo, 104 goals and three trophies. So Gareth Bale has got more goals and more trophies than those three. So, for me, Gareth Bale has to be the most underappreciated player at any club, by the fans in the last 20 years

[Robbie Savage pops up to ask Matt Hancock a question at daily coronavirus briefing] It is mental health awareness week and we all know how important all sport is as a contributor to achieving healthy minds and bodies. Why, therefore, is it that in published guidelines by governing bodies that junior tennis players, golfers and athletes are able to receive one-on-one coaching sessions but young people who play the working class game of football are currently not allowed to?
