Manchester United’s most recent signing from Fulham has enjoyed an incredible rise to the top level of the game.
Four years ago, Chris Smalling was playing non-league football. Now, following a brief spell at Craven Cottage, he’s an England international and has established himself as a versatile and important member of Sir Alex Ferguson’s title-chasing squad.
The 22-year-old is a centre-back by trade but has made several valuable contributions at full-back this term – and he’s also happy to get forward to support the attack.
