Fans demand "unbearable" Robbie Savage’s mic is cut for reaction to Ronaldo goal

Cristiano Ronaldo completed a dramatic comeback for Manchester United against Atalanta on Wednesday night – and Robbie Savage's excitable reaction on commentary didn't go down well with fans watching at home.

United recovered from two goals down to seal a crucial Champions League win at Old Trafford, having gone in at the break trailing 2-0 thanks to early goals from Mario Pasalic and Merih Demiral.

Marcus Rashford managed to pull one back eight minutes after the restart, setting up captain Harry Maguire to level proceedings with 15 minutes remaining.

And it got even better for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men when Ronaldo powered home a bullet header to snatch the victory six minutes later.

Savage, who came through United's academy back in 1993, couldn't contain his delight when CR7 headed in the winner, shouting while on commentary duty for BT Sport: "VIVA RONALDO! He's done it again!"

Fans were not best pleased with his jubilant response on the night, taking to Twitter to brand the former Red Devils youngster "unbearable".

One user wrote: "Someone cut Savages mic state of him".

Another said: "Robbie Savage is such a United fan it’s hard to listen to. I’m all for passion and excitement but there’s levels to it".

A third posted: "Is there a more unbearable commentator on TV than Robbie Savage?"

A fourth commented: "Waiting for Robbie savage to run on the pitch – it's embarrassing, I'm glad they are winning Ole stays in charge".

While one simply stated: "Robbie Savage should never be allowed to commentate on Man Utd games ever again."

Ronaldo's winner lifted a considerable amount of pressure from Solskjaer's shoulders.

The United manager's position at Old Trafford was under intense scrutiny heading into the game, with last Saturday's 4-2 defeat away at Leicester plunging his future into doubt.

Solskjaer will now hope to see his side build on the momentum of Wednesday night's win when they lock horns with bitter rivals Liverpool on Sunday.
