United defender Smalling disciplined over night out in Manchester
Manchester United manager David Moyes has disciplined Chris Smalling after the defender was pictured on a night out in during the early hours of Saturday morning.
The Manchester Evening News published pictures of Smalling which it claimed shows the England international apparently singing in the streets at 3:15am.
Smalling had stayed in Manchester because of a hamstring injury while the rest of his team-mates travelled to London for their clash with West Ham.
Moyes is not happy with the 24-year-old defender’s conduct, although he refused to reveal the punishment he had handed out to the player.
"I’ve dealt with it and I’ve spoken to Chris," the United boss said in a press conference.
"That would be as much as I would want to say on it."
Smalling was in trouble in January as well, becoming the centre of controversy when he was pictured appearing to dress up as a suicide bomber for a private party.
Smalling later apologized for the "ill-thought" and "insensitive" decision to wear the costume, which consisted of a vest, a mock circuit board, empty bottles of Jagermeister and cans of Red Bull, the ingredients of a Jagerbomb.
