Picture of the 1.93 m (6 ft 4 in) tall English centre back of Manchester United

He is a very robust centre back, who is currently playing for Manchester United in the Premier League. He has been at United for a very long time now, given the fact that he joined the club in 2010. He has played an gigantic amount of matches for the Red Devils but he has never really blossomed into a world class defender. He had some really good seasons but overall he has not managed to become the number 1 defensive option after the likes of Vidic and Ferdinand left the club. That is not saying he is not a great defender though, because he definitely is. Especially during the 2013-2016 period he was a regular starter and he even became Champion of the Premier League several times over (2011 and 2013). The story behind his nickname is actually rather funny. Manager Louis van Gaal mistakenly called him 'Mike Smalling' on a press conference. He obviously was in the wrong but the nickname stuck and teammates still call him Mike sometimes. He has stated that he will probably never shake off this nickname and we think it is pretty funny. Mike has also played international football for the English national team but unfortunately for him he was not a part of the 2018 squad that made it to the semi-finals of the world cup.
