Chris Smalling returns to "favourite" position

HAPPY: Manchester United star Chris Smalling happy to be back playing in favoured spot

FOOTBALLER CHRIS Smalling says that he is delighted to be playing in his centre-half position again.

The Manchester United star, who has been playing as a right back since signing to the Premier League side from Fulham last year, said "It was nice to be back in central defence."

Speaking following his side's Champions League match against Otelul Galati yesterday (Oct 18), he said:

"That is my favourite position and I want to play as many games as I can there.

In the match, which didn't produce many results, Smalling admitted that his team felt the pressure from Romanian team.

"We didn't create too many chances in the first half but we kept pressing and it paid off," he said.

Manchester United face the Romanian opponents again in two weeks' time (Nov 2) at Old Trafford and the young England international says he is hopeful another win will bring his team - last year's Champions League runners-up - closer to the knock-out stages of the championship.

"That was a massive game and we play them at home next and if we can pick up another three points, it will look a lot rosier," he said.
