Bilic raves about England’s defender!

SlaveSmalling-600449n Bilic lavished so much praise on Chris Smalling after the England v Slovakia, he started a few conspiracy theories running.

The Hammers boss is known to be in the market for a central deender but Smalling – Manchester United’s England man? Hmm.

Following the game he said: “Smalling’s great on the ball, can pass well, is very vocal, a leader, great in the air, very quick – blimey anything else? –

“Three years ago he was a bit shaky. Maybe he’s not as attractive as John Stones ┬ábut he is good on the ball, passes wel, diagonal passes. He’s one of the best in England.”

Couldn’t be …could it?

  1. Always had Carroll’s measure but again I doubt whether we could afford him.

  2. There have often been rumours linking him with a move to us, as Roman says I doubt we could afford him but also presently he is Utd’s best central defender so it is unlikely that Mourinho would sell him.
