Fulham - Hughes on Smalling!
Pushed out to play at full back, against Aston Villa, Aaron Hughes might have been a little envious of Chris Smalling playing alongside Brede Hangleand.
But Aaron isn`t like that, he`s a model professional and he has nothing but kind words to say about the youngster who will soon be departing to pastures new.
Speaking about Chris Smalling`s move to Old Trafford, Aaron has waxed,
"If anyone deserves the success then it`s him."
"Arsenal and Manchester United have kept tabs on him and I think we`ll look back in a few years and see it as a bargain. United are no mugs."
"They`ve watched him, he`s been in the England U21`s." They`ll look back and say they stole him."
Time remains the key to this one we think, but Aaron could well have a point!
