Nel giorno di riposo concesso da Paulo Fonseca, il difensore della Roma Chris Smalling ne ha approfittato per fare visita alla scuola internazionale St Stephen’s di Roma. Molti gli argomenti trattati dallo stopper inglese davanti a una platea di circa 300 studenti ai quali ha raccontato cosa significa essere un atleta professionista e come la sua dieta vegana abbia contribuito a migliorare le sue prestazioni in campo. Inoltre si è soffermato anche sui suoi progetti sociali, tra cui la collaborazione con la ONG Football Beyond Borders impegnata ad aiutare giovani disagiati nel Regno Unito.

AS Roma and England football player Chris Smalling visited St Stephen’s School today to talk to students in a special assembly about being a professional athlete, his plant-based vegan diet and how that has improved his performance. He also spoke about his social projects, including his work for the UK-based NGO Football Beyond Borders. Smalling was greeted with an enthusiastic applause by nearly 300 students and had been invited to speak by the leaders of St Stephen’s Student club, Tackling Inequality. Smalling came to Rome last summer on loan from Premier League giants Manchester United. He was voted man-of-the match in Roma’s last game with one goal and two assists, and has consistently been praised by the media as one of Europe’s best defenders this year.The St Stephen’s community was honored to have him as a guest and students felt that he is a wonderful role model. #ststephensschoolrome #sssrome #asroma #chrissmalling @officialasroma @smalling
