New Manchester United signing Chris Smalling is keen to contribute in attack as well as defence in his first season for the Reds, reports the Manchester Evening News. The former Fulham centre back opened his United account with a header against Chivas in Mexico, and at 6ft 5ins will be a threat from set pieces.
"I was more surprised than anything, I didn't have a mad celebration," Smalling told MUTV of his goal.
"It was great to get a goal and hopefully I can chip in over the season. The manager has stressed that centre-backs chipping in from corners can be a real bonus to the team."
