Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke at a press conference today and was asked about the situation involving Chris Smalling, who was the subject of a racist headline published by Corriere dello Sport yesterday.

“We’ve been in touch with Chris just so he knows we’ll back him, and Romelu as well. I don’t work in your line of business but wow, it’s incredible. And at least we don’t see that here, that has to be stamped out. It’s the worst front page I’ve seen,” Solskjaer said.

“Chris has been fantastic, but we know sometimes if you change the environment, it can go both ways but Chris is the type to relish these challenges”.
”He’s cultured, he enjoys life down there, it’s a new experience for him, he’s a boy who couldn’t be here without being a regular. And so we’re happy for him because we can see the top player he is. Will he be back here? Yeah”.
