Stelios said: "Savage plays to stop players, but you can stop people by staying on your feet.

"You don't have to try to smash the other guy's leg.

"He is a professional and he does the same job that we do, so why do that? Patrick Vieira stops players as well, just not in the same way as Savage.

"I don't like his type of play. Football is a game and you should just play it and enjoy it.

"I am just surprised Savage has never been sent off in his club career. If he played in Europe, he wouldn't even get past the first round!

"But he is a good player and he has talent, so I don't understand why he plays the way he does."
