'Corriere dello Sport worst front page I've ever seen' - Man Utd boss Solskjaer backs Smalling

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the 'Black Friday' headline from Corriere dello Sport on Thursday is the 'worst front page I've ever seen' after confirming he expects Chris Smalling to return to Manchester United.

Smalling is enjoying a spell of fine form since swapping United for Roma on loan in the summer, helping his side to fifth place in Serie A, level on points with fourth-placed Cagliari, while conceding only two goals more than table-topping Inter.

Former Red Devils striker Romelu Lukaku will come up against his old United team-mate when the Nerazzurri host Smalling's side at San Siro on Friday evening and the pre-match talk largely centred around the pair's reunion.
