Man Utd boss Solskjaer expects Smalling return

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he doesn't expect Chris Smalling to be sold to AS Roma.

The defender is on a straight loan with the Giallorosso.

And Smalling has impressed since moving to the Serie A outfit.

"He's a boy who couldn't be here without being a regular and we decided on that. I am so, so happy for him because we can see the top player he is," Solskjaer said.

Asked if he expects the centre-back to return to United, the Norwegian said: “Yeah."
