Chris Smalling is making a name for himself as a new United player but, as he tells us, football isn’t the only sport he excels at...
What are your interests away from the pitch?
I like golf, although I’m not as good as some of the boys here. I’m a big tennis fan, too. I went to Wimbledon a few years ago and had a great day. I like table-tennis, too - there’s a competition between the lads and I’m ready for any challenger.
Have you any hidden talents?
[Pauses to think] I was a national judo champion when I was younger. I started when I was about six or seven and quit just before I joined Fulham. I’ve got medals somewhere.
