Chris Smalling: “I hope to win with Mourinho again.”

Chris Smalling recently spoke to The Telegraph about England’s loss in the Euros and his reunion with former Manchester United boss José Mourinho.

He was first asked about Chiellini’s late shirt pull on Bukayo Saka that saved Italy from a very dangerous counter-attack.

“To see that as an England fan was horrible, but had the roles been reversed, had I been there in Chiellini’s place I would have done the same thing. It’s thanks to them (Bonucci and Chiellini) that they were able to manage that situation, helping the much younger teammates.”

The 31-year-old center-back then gave his thoughts on what the future might hold for him now that Mourinho is Roma’s new manager.

“Last time we worked together (from 2016 to 2018) we won a number of trophies so I hope we can do the same here this season.”

Thus, after being linked with an exit from the Roman club, the Englishman hints at a potential stay in the capital for the upcoming campaign.
