Christopher Lloyd Smalling is an English professional footballer who plays as a centre back for Premier League club Manchester United and the English national team.

During his youth, Smalling played for the Millwall academy before joining non-League club Maidstone United. After establishing himself in the Maidstone United first team, he signed for Middlesbrough in May 2008. However, shortly after joining Middlesbrough, Smalling had his contract with the club cancelled after raising concerns over homesickness. Soon after, in June 2008, he signed for Premier League club Fulham. He made his professional debut with them in May 2009 and helped them reach the 2010 UEFA Europa League Final the following season.

In January 2010, Smalling signed a pre-contract agreement with Manchester United and joined them officially in July 2010. He made his competitive debut in the 2010 FA Community Shield victory over Chelsea, which earned him his first career medal. Since his debut, he has gone on to make more than 200 appearances for the club, winning two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, a League Cup, a UEFA Europa League and a further two Community Shields.

Smalling represented the England Schools under-18 team in early 2008, before making his debut for the national under-20 and under-21 teams in 2009. He made his senior international debut in September 2011 and has appeared at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2016. Description provided by Wikipedia

I am delighted to continue my journey with Manchester United. It is an honour to play for this club and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all staff that have been associated with the team over the last 9 seasons, my team mates past and present, and the fans who have continued to show support for the squad game in game out.

Whilst this is a very proud day for me and my family, focus is very much on tomorrow and on the busy schedule of games over the festive period. Roll on Super Sunday...โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ”ด

Honestly I really don't under the negative comments about Smalling. He has made mistakes? Yes, but is there any defender that is error-free? This guy has shown the resilience to bounce back from adversities and in reality, he has been our best and most consistent defender seeing as Moyes, Van Gaal and now Josรฉ have deemed him good enough to start.

Negative comments aside.. Congratulations Chris Smalling! You've been in the team for a long time now. You have the potential to be a leader.. Act like one! Looking forward to seeing you stronger and better than ever. Big game tomorrow..Good luck to you and the team. Lets do this.. #GGMU ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

You must have the best agent ever - prove me wrong by all means but how you even wear a red shirt is beyond me ๐Ÿ˜ก

Congrats you've been United's most consistent defender for last 5 or so years. Keep up the good work. #mufcok

Still our most consistent defender. Watched Yerry Mina 2day nd I'm delighted Ed refused to let deluded Jose sign him...

Rio Ferdinand is in Kenya now..we're waiting for you as well

Think you have worked really hard to deserve this and done well over the last 6 months. Decent player. But the comments on here will be super negative- facebook is quite poisonous! Donโ€™t let it ruin your celebrations mate. Congrats Chris!

u deserve to be the leader๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โœŒ

Well deserved Chris I like your work rate at the back ,good we still have u ,u ave that United spirit of Fergie

Congratulations Shut the goal post tomorrow! May these years treat you well

That 's good news, Chris - congratulasjon ๐Ÿ˜Šโคโšฝ๏ธ big game to-morrow: come om United! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hmmmmmn......you should be playing for Charlton athletic and not Man Utd, but a again same can be said for several of the squad

90th minute headed winner will do tomoz ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Creativity smalling ball foward please not behind .. Not left or right always .. U are the best though

Congrats bro but be strong and tougher on strikers let them feel pain within themselves after your tackles OK I tell you the next game they will be calm in your presence. Sometimes watch Vidic videos I know your admire him. Be strong

Give over with the Smalling hate... idiots.

I am waiting for your performance on tomorrow ๐Ÿ‘

I am so proud of you too bro we highly recognize your incitement appreciation all good doing you have done for us we are Red. United is our club forever thanks so much dube

Mr. Mike, let's all hope the new contract is to boost ur selling price.

The best news ever Chris. Welcome to Kenya ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ช someday.

Yes my dear, But please do more on your confidence, creativity, ball control and attacking minded strong CB. Stop pushing or romancing your opponents

Stole a living you have Mike

Hahhahahaha some one is not happy, congrats any way Mr Smalling,

Fuck of !!! Now its time to think about my health now I can stop supporting this joke club

You guys have to improve and have to be more ambitious of winning games. There is no impact from this team. This is awful when Manchester United is disappointing every match. 26 points Do you guys think it's enough?

We are 1/3 of the way towards our fundraising goal, following my ยฃ10k personal donation and the generous donations of my followers. I cannot thank you enough.

For those that have volunteered their time to guarantee Barnabus have the best Christmas period this year, another big thank you! I look forward to seeing a few of you on December 13th when I volunteer my time to the kitchen staff, supporting with food prep for the annual Christmas party.

We still have a little way to go so let's continue spreading a little Christmas cheer to those less fortunate than ourselves. #29for29
