Report: injured Smalling to miss Benevento

Roma star defender Chris Smalling has reportedly picked up a mild knee sprain and will miss Sunday’s clash against Benevento.

According to both Il Tempo and Tele Radio Stereo Smalling picked up a mild strain at his left knee. Today he will work individually and his conditions will be evaluated day by day.

Not a serious injury but the Englishman is reportedly going to skip the upcoming Serie A clash against Benevento.

Smalling had made his Roma return in the deadline day and had his official unveiling earlier this week.

"I’m very happy to be here,” he told reporters.

“I am convinced that the team is stronger this year thanks to the experience gained in the last season. I can not wait to start, we want to take away great satisfaction".
