Chris Smalling ‘gutted’ as Man Utd refuse to let him play for Roma in Europa League

Chris Smalling has expressed his frustration at not being allowed in Roma’s Europa League squad, as fears grow that he may have played his last game for the club.

Smalling has been exceptional during his loan from Manchester United this season. However, United have refused to allow him to play for Roma in the remaining rounds of the Europa League.

The two clubs could potentially meet in the semi-finals, if both make it that far. But even though they have allowed another loanee, Alexis Sanchez, to extend his loan at Inter Milan to cover the competition, United have not let Roma do the same with Smalling.

With the Giallorossi struggling to reach the asking price for the 30-year-old, there are concerns that Smalling, despite his will to stay, may never play for the club again.

And the Englishman has now shared his annoyance at not being allowed to complete his remarkable journey this season.

“I’m gutted that I can’t finish what we started this season,” he wrote on Twitter.

“To experience the love shown to me in such a short time was extra special and it will not be forgotten.

“I want to thank and wish all the players and staff the best of luck against Sevilla. DAJE ROMA!”

If this is the end of Smalling’s Roma career, he will finish it with 37 appearances and three goals.
