Chris Smalling's billion dollar offer
Manchester United defender Chris Smalling cracked a joke at his own expense after facing a fresh wave of criticism from fans and pundits alike.
Having been left out of the most recent England squad, the centre-back posted an image of his "holiday reading" on his Instagram, making light of his recent dodgy performances.
Smalling tagged United into a photo of a book entitled "How To Turn Down A Billion Dollars" which appeared to refer to an offer the Red Devils snubbed for the 28-year-old just a few short months ago -- shortly before his form took a dramatic dip.
It's good to have a sense of humour about these things.
