Chris Smalling speaks out after being robbed at gunpoint

Chris Smalling has thanked those who offered support to his family after the Roma defender was robbed at gunpoint at their home in Italy. 

As reported on Friday, three gunmen broke into Smalling's home in Rome and confronted the defender. The England international was forced to open a safe and hand over three Rolex watches, jewelry, and around 300 euros ($359) in cash.

"I’d like to thank everyone for your well wishes and support! My family although very shaken up are luckily unharmed! ❤️," the former Manchester United defender posted on his Twitter account

"Hoping these people can find a more meaningful way to live their lives without causing such harm and distress to others."

The defender went on and revealed no one was hurt during the attack but his family was left in shock. 

"I'd like to thank everyone for your well wishes and support!" Smalling wrote on Twitter.

"My family although very shaken up are luckily unharmed! Hoping these people can find a more meaningful way to live their lives without causing such harm and distress to others."

The 31-year-old signed for Roma on loan in 2019 before he made the move permanent last year.
