Man Utd defender Smalling: Roma took me out of comfort zone

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is delighted with his loan at Roma this season.

Smalling retains hope of signing permanently with the Giallorosso.

He told The Times: “Roma have a very big heart. I noticed that quickly here. Roma do help people a lot, they help a lot outside of the norm. That's great.

“They really set an example, and other clubs have got on board. I'm very proud to be associated with Roma because of all their initiatives.

“Some English players have gone abroad but not many. It was a challenge that I wanted to take. I'm someone who definitely lives by not having any regrets.

“I like new things maybe out of my comfort zone and show people that anything is possible."
