Chris Smalling Makes Horrible Mistake For Roma Vs Bologna

Chris Smalling reverted to type last night following a costly mistake for Roma vs Bologna.

Roma are currently in a tight top four battle in Serie A and got off to a poor start against 'I Rossoblu' after the 30-year-old's mistake.

The on-loan Manchester United defender misreads a cross completely and fails to clear his lines as Riccardo Orsolini arrived to slot past Pau Lopez.

Fans reacted on Twitter as Smalling made his first mistake during an otherwise impressive loan spell in Italy.

Roma leveled through a Stefano Denswil own goal but hot prospect Musa Barrow netted two to give Siniša Mihajlović's side a 3-1 advantage.

On-loan Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan pulled one back for 'I Gialloross' but Bryan Cristante's red card halted any hope of a comeback.

Roma remain in fifth place level on points with Atalanta in fourth.

Smalling was deemed surplus to requirements at parent club United by boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.

The Norwegian put his faith in £80 million signing Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof to lead United's backline this season.

Solskjaer discussed his side's defence in a recent interview with Man United's official website and said they're 'conceding less goals'.

"Towards the end now, before this break, we played okay and didn't concede too many goals. But we didn't create chances and missed that little bit of spark, I felt. Maybe because of the mental tiredness."

Many United fans have discussed Smalling returning following his impressive displays overseas this season.

But it's safe to say they would want to avoid these kinds of mistakes from the former England international.
