Chris Smalling sends a warning to Manchester United ahead of Roma clash.

Chris Smalling sends a warning to Manchester United ahead of Roma clash.

Former Man United player Chris Smalling has warned Manchester United that Roma are fully alert of what a trophy will mean to both clubs ahead of Thursday’s Europa League semi-final first leg.

Ole Gunnar men are targeting to reach their first European competition final since winning the Europa League in 2017 and are also keen to reverse the poor record they have developed in semi-finals under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

On the other side, AS Roma kook determined to win their first trophy since 2008, meaning it is an important game for both clubs.

The game has an added importance for Smalling, who turned his loan from United to Roma into a permanent deal in the summer, and he says he is well-aware of the importance.

Smalling told Teamtalk:


“The one disappointment is we don’t have a full house, likewise having my family watching two clubs that are a big part of my career.

“It doesn’t take away the emotions, as it’s so rare that you know every player on the pitch.

“It’s such a big game as well. It has all the ingredients to put in one of our best performances.

“It’s a special game. It’s a semi-final and added on top playing against United.
“Obviously being in Rome for nearly the last two years, I think, I know the importance of bringing home a trophy because it’s been far too long.

“There’s so many ingredients for this so I don’t think there will be a bigger game to be a part of.

“I’m just thankful I’m now fit and I’m able to contribute because the whole squad needs every player.”

Reflecting on Manchester United’s progress from afar under Ole Gunnar, Smalling said he was fascinated with the progress the club have made under him, with whom he says he had a good relationship.

He said: “This season they’re obviously having a very good season
“When he first came in I was injured, but then as soon as I got fit he played me and we had a good relationship.

“Then obviously we had very honest conversations in the summer but, yeah, now we’ll meet on the pitch and I’m really looking forward to it.”
