Roma defender Fazio full of praise for Smalling

Roma defender Federico Fazio is full of praise for Chris Smalling.

Smalling is on-loan at Roma from Manchester United this season.

Fazio says, “Chris Smalling has adapted very well to Serie A, even if it is different to the football in England. Gianluca Mancini is also a talented centre-back, so I can play alongside either of them.

“It's important that we win, because we can't let ourselves fall too far off the top spots. At the same time, we want to go far in the Europa League, although the initial focus is on just winning the group."
