Manchester United fans were furious with Chris Smalling following his performance against Barcelona in the pre-season on Thursday morning.

The Englishman has come under heavy criticism at Old Trafford, with many supporters believing that he is not good enough to play in a United shirt.

Jose Mourinho has given him minutes to prove himself ahead of the new Premier League season and he hasn’t done well so far with a poor performance against Barcelona, making a number of mistakes.

Here’s what supporters on social media had to say about his performance.

It’s a shame because the Smalling from Louis van Gaal‘s time at the club was one of the best defenders in the league, however, now, he just hasn’t been able to keep consistent.

Although he did perform well in the Europa League final, Smalling has fallen down the pecking order with Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones in front of him.

There were reports that West Bromwich Albion had made an advancement to sign him and after his shocking display against Barcelona, it’s clear that he has much work ahead if he wants to save his Old Trafford career.
