Savage ponders Wales international return
Derby captain Robbie Savage is prepared to end his international retirement and play for Wales again under new boss Gary Speed. The 36-year-old midfielder quit playing for his country in 2005 following a fall-out with then boss John Toshack.
"I have said I am available and if Gary thinks it's the right thing for me to come back, then I will do," Savage told the Derby Telegraph.
"I am a passionate Welshman and I loved playing for them. Of course I would play for Wales again, if asked.
"But I know he won't pick people for the sake of giving his old mates a last hurrah. He is a man who commands respect for what he's done on the pitch and for his football knowledge."
