Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has signed a new five year contract with Manchester United. Smalling joined the Red Devils from Fulham last summer and acquitted himself well enough at Old Trafford to make over 30 appearances last season.
Sir Alex Ferguson said he was delighted with Smalling penning a new deal. The United gaffer said “Chris has been outstanding since joining us from Fulham last year, he is an extremely talented young defender, he’s quick, strong and reads the game well, he is a great asset to the team.”
Smalling told Manutd.com that he was very pleased with his progress at Old Trafford so far.
“This is a great club and, in the short time I have been here, I have already achieved more than I could have ever expected to. I am looking forward to a long and successful career at Manchester United.”
