Smalling accepts Man Utd rotations

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is desperate for regular first team action.

Squad rotation has long been part of life at Manchester United. And while Smalling admits he'd like to play every game, he's also aware of the system's benefits.

"You're at one of the biggest clubs in the world and the manager needs to do what he does. We are happy at the minute because everyone is getting games. Long may that continue.

"When you are injured you want to play. When you are fit you just want to play every week. But there is a large degree of patience required. You can't get too frustrated."
