GOOD MORNING FOUNDS
Charlie Savage hopes to take a step better than his old man – and create class at Manchester United.
But the 17-year-old midfielder said that Scott McTominay, not Robbie’s father, was the main inspiration behind his goal of reaching the Old Trafford first team.
He told SunSport: “The main inspiration for me is Scott – he’s the best for us. He came to talk to us. He had a hard time in the youth team.
“He didn’t play many games but he went on and he proved that it’s not always the standout players that come into the starting lineup.
“Sometimes the players may have leaned back, but they kept pushing.
“Scott, Marcus Rashford and even Brandon Williams have all inspired us to improve and move forward.”
Meanwhile, England look set to be handed at least four more games in Euro 2020 – with Uefa preparing for Dublin to withdraw from host on Wednesday.
And that should give Gareth Southgate and his Three Lions the prospect of having another home game this summer, albeit NOT at Wembley.
Uefa’s deadline for 12 locations has been scheduled to confirm that they can host games with the crowd that ended on Wednesday.
Uefa’s senior figures argue that the Irish capital is a city most likely unable to give the Euro leaders the guarantees they sought, leaving Aviva disqualified from participating in the games of me.
And if so, it is now expected that the four matches that will take place in Ireland will be transferred to England, as the FA has planned seven matches at Wembley in advance.
And finally, Craig Dawson is a permanent West Ham player as a huge reward from Monday’s thrilling win over Wolves.
The defender completed 15 Premier League appearances in 45 minutes or more on loan from Watford in a 3-2 win that put Irons fourth.
That means Dawson’s one-year interim contract will now automatically become a two-year permanent contract for a £ 2.2 million fee.
Dawson, 30, said: “Coming to West Ham has been a great move for myself and it’s a privilege to play for such a club with such a long tradition.
“The roster has real cohesion, team spirit and great quality. I am excited for what my future at the Club holds and the potential for what we as a Club can continue to achieve. “
