Manchester United youngster wants to retire with the champions

Manchester United defender and England international, Chris Smalling, says that he wants to stay with the Premier League champions for the rest of his career.

Despite originally being a centre-back, the 21 year-old has started the season well in the right-back position following injuries to Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand and Rafael.

Speaking to Inside United, the former Fulham stopper said: “I don’t look too far ahead but I hope I can really get an established career and stay here for the rest of my life.”

He added: “I’m really enjoying my football at the minute. The manager has full faith in me and I want to repay that in the years to come.”
