Savage turns on Toshack

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Robbie Savage has hit out at John Toshack as he continues his long-running feud with the Wales manager.
The pair fell out two years ago when Toshack told the tough-tackling Savage that he was not part of his long-term plans for the national side.
A bitter Savage told the Daily Mirror: "There's more chance of me flying Concorde to the moon blindfolded than there is of him taking Wales to the South African World Cup.
"John Toshack told us to judge him after the European qualifying games. The truth is we've gone a long way backwards.
"I do hope he doesn't start the 'we'll make it to South Africa' stuff because that would be utterly ridiculous and we all know it.
"It's not going to happen and, as a Wales fan, I'm as dejected as the rest of the nation.
"Only 25,000 turned up for a qualifier against one of the world's best teams (Germany on Saturday) - that tells you everything.
"Just a few years ago under Mark Hughes we beat Germany in a friendly at the Millennium Stadium in front of 75,000 - that tells you how far we've sunk."
