The former Leicester City midfielder was involved in a ‘debate’ on last week’s edition of Fletch &  Sav, prompted by comments in Alex Ferguson’s new book, over the nature of what makes a player “world class.”

“What defines ‘world class’?” Savage mused, as he wore the same outfit as his co-presenter Darren Fletcher.

“Because, at times, I’ll be honest with you, I was ‘world class'”.
