Keown wrote in the Daily Mail: “Manchester United have had some illustrious defenders in recent years — Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Jaap Stam, Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister — and Chris Smalling could be next in line. It is easy to underestimate how hard it can be adjusting to a club the size of Manchester United.

“Not that long ago Smalling was playing in non-League with Maidstone, and now Louis van Gaal is talking about him as a potential captain. It takes time to settle at a club like United but Smalling is developing the maturity and personality to go with the ability he has always had.”
