Things went wrong for Savage when he chose his underwear.  A choice of skin tight white y fronts.  During training Savage let out a far but lets just say a bit more came out and his pants were ruined.

A bit dejected Sav went for a shower and left his pants in the changing room but the Blackburn Rovers players weren’t the forgiving types.  They took the blond haired maestro’s dirty undies and hung them up in the middle of the Rovers canteen.

Pretty grim.

Tick tock.  You’ve only got 24 hours to get 20% off vintage United shirts including this bad boy.
