Smalling has been impressive for United this season.

Video: Chris Smalling names Sergio Romero and Marcus Rojo as the hardest players at Manchester United

Published 2 Comments

Chris Smalling believes that Argentinian duo Sergio Romero and Marcus Rojo are the hardest players at Manchester United.

The pair may have only played ten times in the Premier League between them this season, but the central defender didn’t hesitate when asked which one of his teammates was the hardest.

“Sergio (Romero), Marcus Rojo. They’ve got that Argentinian switch on them that’s not all there,” Smalling said in an interview for Soccer AM.

“If something bad was to happen you’d back them to be in one of your group.”

Wayne Rooney also got a mention with Smalling suggesting that the striker may be in third but joked that the video that emerged last year of Stoke City’s Phil Bardsley knocking him out “lowered his reputation.”

The England defender has been impressive for United this season, with only Tottenham conceding more goals than the Red Devils in the Premier League this campaign.

However, it’s been a disappointing season for Louis van Gaal’s men as they sit in fifth with a very faint chance of achieving a top four finish, trailing Manchester City rivals by six points.


However, there is still an opportunity for the club to salvage something as they’re through to the fifth round of the FA Cup - where they face Shrewsbury Town.

They also have a chance of achieving Champions League qualification by winning the Europa League where they face Danish side Midtjylland after the Old Trafford side were knocked out of their Champions League group.

Who do you think is Manchester United's hardest player?
