Robbie Savage believes he has been picked on by certain fellow professionals and the media in recent weeks.
After the game against Bolton on Saturday, Wanderers midfielder Stelios Giannakopoulos accused Savage of deliberately trying to hurt opposition players. However Savage is angry at the allegation.
‘Sometimes maybe I do bring things upon myself. But it’s been totally outrageous these last few days,’ He told Sky Sports
‘One of the Bolton players has been saying I intentionally go out and try to hurt opponents.
That’s totally unjustified and I have to defend myself. I’ve never been sent off in my club career. I’ve played 422 games and never gone over the top once.’
Meanwhile Sam Allardyce could be in trouble after he refused to blame his players for inciting a riot between fans, instead blaming the referee Mike Riley.
‘Some of our fans had a go at theirs. But it wasn’t down to the players; it was down to the referee.’
