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

You are here having tons of kisses while we were beaten to pop by PSG. Ok na!

Instead of assuring us a win against loserpool you're just post absolute rubbish

Smalling u need to start the return leg match with PSg ...

Smalling lost his place in team. Smalling also lost his place on bed.

What's his name

We lost a legend last night, eric harrison. And what you could only post is a stupid val pix. Mediocrity at its best.

You and your missus are something else. Two very compassionate people, good on ya man....we love hard, we love our health, we love the defenseless animals, the environment....

Happy Valentine's guys

you were solid chris! mitrovic has no chance. keep at it! <3

Great in the air as always Smalling. Are you losing weight? Or is that the crazy hair making you look even taller.

You don't always play with confident as a Manchester united player, why? Anyways, good job today...

You need to stop making back passes dude.

This is the mighty Manchester united my mama warned me about.... Thank you for saving me from the #mourinho sleepless nights

Great to see you Chris.

Well played Chris, good to see you get some game time

Great performance United👏👏⚽✔✔💪💪

Well played Chris - not sure about the hair style though. You are probably too young to remember the stick Jason Lee got when he was at Forest back in the day

Your defending at times were quite baffling and sub-par

Great team spirit? Enjoying watching Utd now mourinno has gone

Brother increase your potential at field

What has his hairstyle got to do with u peoples? Is it ur head? Is it ur hair? Is it ur money? Is it ur legs he using to play? People these days don't mind their goddamn business. What is wrong with the world?

You weren't at your top man,but nice thing you helped us get a clean sheet

chris Try hard U made some mistakes today

Sure you didnt mean Chicken Cottage

Dont know what was more aweful. Thier defence or your thing on the head.

And the display you showed was good

Chris U r so Solid at the back today. I call u " Always On Time"

Was it Putney End or Craven Cottage?

Great performance today by you guys. 💪

Guy upgrade your football

Ahead and beat PSG Chris

Psg are next to be beating GGMU well played again

Get your hair cut mike

Please can you leave United together with your friend Jones???

Ryan Tierney

From Nairobi this could be my first time to be in a flight and first to watch live game. I need that ticket please

Would love To win but I’m poor and out of a job. Any chance we can win airplane tickets from the East Coast of the USA

thank you GGMU

Done 😍🙏🏻

You should be more concerned about your terrible style of defending. You and jones, i wonder what the club is still doing with the both of you. It's an insult to the other defenders who are way better than you and jones but they are playing in lower clubs. Maguire for instance.

Why not force a move I use the money to buy fans ice cream?

When will you leave united?


Thanks so much Chris!!!

Welcome back my Man


Wow so you're still in Manchester United 🔴 😂

This job suits you more. Would love to see you and Jones on the gate at old Trafford selling tickets

From Vietnam's 😎👍

Same here from Kenya

My friend Smalling! It's my dream to be with you and the whole team, see them, meet them, talk with you, it would be wonderful, I love you all ... What a pity that this dream so great for me, I can not fulfill it! Only God knows how much I love him! ... It's a pity that I'm far from you and can not be there personally watching the games ... I pray to God some day this dream will come true! Take care of yourself, Friend Smalling! :)
