Samantha Cooke hails boyfriend Chris Smalling after his Man United winner

Chris Smalling’s girlfriend spoke of her pride after the Manchester United defender scored the winner in a 2-1 victory over Wolfsburg on Wednesday night.

The England international completed United’s comeback at Old Trafford after he poked a finish past the Wolfsburg goalkeeper following Juan Mata’s brilliant flicked pass.

The £37.1m midfielder has earlier levelled for the Reds Devils from the penalty spot after the Wolves had taken an early lead thanks to Daniel Caligiuri’s brilliantly worked goal.

And glamour model Samantha Cooke didn’t waste time taking to her Instagram page to writing gushing post dedicated to her boyfriend after his 52nd-minute winner.

Cooke wrote on the photo-sharing app: “Get in proud as always xxxxx @smalling”

Smalling has been a key part of Louis van Gaal’s side this season after having started every Champions League and Premier League game.
