Robbie Savage quits Twitter – for about five minutes, returns to war with Rio Ferdinand

Yes, it’s another @robbiesavage8 update.


We’ll try not to make a habit of reporting every word published on Robbie Savage‘s Twitter account, but there’s not a lot else going on today.

Plus he actually managed to be quite funny last night.

Having threatened to quit the site earlier in the evening after receiving a hail of abuse for his comments on footballers’ wages yesterday, the Derby County midfielder had a change of heart and instead jumped back into his neverending battle with Rio Ferdinand.

Here’s some of the ‘best’ of it, as collated by The Sun.

    I wonder what SAF thinks of rioferdy5′s twitter debates…considering rio isn’t supposed to have one… according to MUFC’s own website.

    I wish managers had twitter accounts…esp.
    - SAF
    - Jose Mourinho
    - Harry Redknapp
    - Rafa Benitez

    Rio Ferdinad is a prick and a fool,

    agree with Kralle Kraillson.
    And this will be useful for him once he embarks upon the inevitable media career after retirement.
