Fulham ace backs Smalling to be a hit at Man Utd

United signed Smalling from Fulham in a £10million deal last month.

“He has got just the right mentality and has worked really hard,” said Hangeland.

“We have told him to try and stick to that philosophy.

“He’s young, he’s big, he’s quick and good on the ball – there’s not many of those central defenders around.”
