It’s a good feeling to know the manager and the club back me’: Chris Smalling signs three-and-a-half-year deal to extend Manchester United till 2022

Chris Smalling has signed a new long-term contract with Manchester United until 2022. 

The 29-year-old, who has made over 300 appearances for the Red Devils since moving from Fulham in 2010, signed a three-and-a-half-year deal on Saturday. 

The Red Devils have an option to extend the contract for a further year.

The defender told the club’s official website: ‘It’s a great feeling to know the manager and the club back me, I’m looking forward to repaying them!’  

Smalling added: ‘This is my ninth season with the club and I am delighted to be continuing my progression with this team.

‘It is a real honour to play for Manchester United and we are all now concentrating on the busy schedule of games throughout the festive period.’

Smalling has made 18 appearances under United boss Jose Mourinho this season.

Jose Mourinho said: ‘I am very happy Chris has signed a new contract. Chris has been with the club for a number of years and is now one of the senior players within our squad.’

The England international, who has earned 31 caps for his country, is preparing to face bitter rivals Liverpool on Sunday.
