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

Roy Keane: ''You look at Matthijs de Ligt, he’s captaining Ajax at 19 years old earning a modest wage. Meanwhile Rashford is scoring 10 goals a season, killing disabled fans in wheelchairs with his free kicks earning £100k & Lingard is earning £120k to be an Instagrammer.”

Trận sau gặp Barca chắc lên đá tiền đạo hả =))) Bắt bài Messi ghi bàn vô lưới De Gea ai chơi lại =))

Hope you gonna prove messi fans wrong on Wednesday ...no jokes on the pitch please 👀🤙

Please leave Manchester united I beg you ya services ain't needed

Ти си лайно и нищо повече! Дано те продадем, скапаняк грозен. Даже бих платил за да не си при нас догодина!

smalling always costing united terrible goals.You have be in the club for long but you dont improve.why?

You did not play well yesterday

Manchester United is bigger than Chris Smalling,... Is the kind of player that can find his prospect in Fulham or Nottingham Forest. Or else Man U will continue to fight for top six

I am sorry to say if you play like that against Barcelona you will be in serious trouble, come on lads get some pace in your game 😲😲

Jones is far better than you

They're the type of games we lost under Jose and co

You played well today Chris Smalling.

Smalling did a great job yesterday

Keep going lads we need you yo bring ❤😍💪💪 #GGMU❤💪😍

you are a underrated player at utd,because fans dont understand about football.carry on the good work.m.o.t.m. today. Pls give a mess to Pogba........PLS LEAVE.......

Smalling your my favourite center half at United now. Because you're never afraid to put yourself in the line of death when defending

You played well today Chris Smalling.

Man united a great family.

To be honest... Since smalling did dis hair his game has improved seriously... M baffled☺

Mr Trailblazer does it again....another feather to your cap...I wonder why the guys call you Basic Billy...Say hi to the wonderful misus....

Another solid performance Chris keep up the good work #mufc 👏🏻🔴⚪️⚫️

Fake defender of all seasons, just find ur way and go to Vietnam league.......we are tired of u own goals scorer.

Hi, Small-thing! Why didn't you post any photos of licking LM10 from your last Champions League triumph (!). FYKI, we say "I'm Chris Small-thing", whenever someone who likes ugly gay football (like you are playing) trying to show his football expertise 🤣

Congratulations Smalling for awesome defense and performance generally.

Nice one guys. Please i need that red devil knocking at pur opponent door with blood.

Amazing nite 🔴⚫⚪

One of your best performances. Been top class recently.

Top performance Chris and no grabbing in the box. 9.5/10 mate

Psg was stunned by the last 2 subs ole made 😂😂😂 they thought they winning the game

Great stuff and as far as I'm concerned United are once again unbeaten under Ole. Yeah, I know we got beat at home by PSG but in a 2 leg match that was only half-time :)

You played a fantastic game, Mike! 😊
