Chris Smalling recently spoke to La Gazzetta Dello Sport. The defender reflected on the end of last season, which saw Roma lose a place in the UEFA Champions League to rivals Lazio. A situation that the former Manchester United player does not appreciate. He discusses the subject, declaring his delight at staying with the Giallorossi before revealing his objective for next season.

“I had a very clear desire to stay in Rome, where I’ve always been very happy. I spoke to Mourinho, Pinto and the owners, listened to their ambitions and didn’t hesitate. Then with the fans. For a club like Roma, too much is the minimum. That, too, should spur us on to greater consistency. We’re not happy that we finished behind Lazio and that they’re playing in the Champions League and we’re not. But I’m sure it will give us the right motivation to get back up,” said the English defender.
