Roma defender Chris Smalling admits he misses Man Utd

Roma defender Chris Smalling admits he misses parent club Manchester United.

Smalling was shipped out on loan to Roma for the season as United ended up with a glut of centre-backs following the £80million summer signing of Harry Maguire.

He told talkSPORT he's missing United, "I do because I was there for so many years and I was used to be being part of the furniture there.

“But I am enjoying my new chapter, and hopefully I can keep affecting performances on the pitch and we can have a successful season. But right now I'm really enjoying being in Italy.

“I am feeling very settled; my family is over here and the dogs are over here, so everyone is settled. When my family are happy and I am happy it shows on the pitch."
