Manchester United fan creates Chris Smalling video after his move to Roma

Manchester United v Cardiff City - Premier League

Chris Smalling has left Manchester United to join Roma on loan.

The Italian club will pay £2.7m to have the defender for the rest of the season, who has spent nine seasons at Old Trafford.

Despite winning the Premier League twice with the club, Smalling has fallen down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

On Friday, Solskjaer explained his decision to allow the 29-year-old to leave.

"This opportunity for Chris has come up in the last couple of days," said the United boss.

"We've got six fit centre-backs. I couldn't promise him regular football.

"It's a big club, a good league. There are not many English players who have had the chance to play in Italy and I'm sure he'll come back stronger and better for it."

And Smalling himself believes it’s a great move for him.

"This is the perfect opportunity for me. The chance to experience a new league, with a big team that has got big aspirations is exactly what I needed," Smalling said.

He may have been a great servant to the club but it seems United fans aren’t too disappointed to see the back of him.


One fan has created a rather hilarious video full of Smalling’s biggest mistakes in a United shirt.

Accompanying it is a rather harsh soundtrack - but the video itself is funny.

Take a look:

Whether Smalling can come back to United and force himself back into the first-team remains to be seen.

But it looks as though his career at the Theatre of Dreams is over.
