Chris Smalling: Roma defender and family robbed by armed men at home

Chris Smalling joined Roma from Manchester United in August 2019

Roma defender Chris Smalling and his family were victims of an armed robbery at their home early Friday.

The robbery took place at the former Manchester United center-back home in southern Rome, with luxury watches and jewelry taken.

Smalling had to hand the items over to three armed men before they left the house.

The police, who were called to the house at 5 a.m. local time, are investigating the incident in which no one was injured.

Smalling is said to be shocked by the incident but is calm now that the situation has been brought under control.

On Thursday night, the defender watched from the sidelines with a knee injury as Roma secured an overall victory in the quarter-finals of the Europa League about Ajax.

Smalling, who played the last of his 31 international matches in England in June 2017, joined Roma in October 2020 after being on loan from the previous season.

He told BBC Sport in February this year how he and his family settled in the Italian capital.
