Further tests have revealed that Chris Smalling has broken his toe in two places with the United defender set to miss at least four weeks.
Jose Mourinho was critical of Smalling and teammate Luke Shaw who were unavailable for the game at Swansea. He said the pair should change their "mindset" and be prepared to play through the pain while implying their symptoms were psychosomatic: "Smalling doesn't feel that he can play 100 percent with his pain," said the United boss before adding: "For the team, you have to do anything." However, speaking to the press on Monday, interim England manager Gareth Southgate disagreed: "They didn't play, though, so there's a medical issue. Obviously, it's a difficult one because I don't know the reason for the comments Jose's made." And it now seems Southgate was correct, as ongoing checks confirm Smalling has a broken toe which will keep him side-lined for the next month. Fri, Nov 11, 2016 06:54:00 AM
