The English defender is still recovering from an injury but he wants to be an important player for Roma as soon as possible.
When Roma‘s sporting director Petrachi finalized his acquisition, the fans of the Lupi celebrated the defender like a superstar. Chris Smalling may give Fonseca a great contribution this season.
The center-back was recently interviewed by the British outlet The Telegraph and spoke about his arrival in the eternal city and his professional objectives.
“This is a perfect opportunity to live in a different culture. It’s a total change,” said Smalling.
One of his goals is to get a call back from his national team. “When I played at Manchester United, I was always summoned. My goal is always to get a call-up.”
The English defender may still be out of the next Serie A match against Bologna. Fazio and Mancini are improving but Roma’s fans are hoping to see Smalling make a difference soon. His speed and experience can bring tremendous benefits to the Giallorossi this campaign.
