Giggs slams United behaviour after Chelsea thumping

Cape Town - Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has hit out at the club's players for their behaviour after the 4-0 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Giggs feels the way the players were laughing and swapping shirts with their opponents was inappropriate after such a big defeat.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Juan Mata and David de Gea could all be seen sharing jokes and chatting with their conquerors, and this has vexed the former United and Wales winger.

"You can get beat in a football match, but then when you’re getting beat and you’re swapping shirts - which is something I don’t like, call me old fashioned," he said.

"If you get beat 4-0, you congratulate the opposition, you thank the supporters and then you get off the pitch.

"You don’t stand around on the pitch, swapping shirts and laughing, with the team that’s just beat you."

It took just 30 seconds for United to fall behind at the Bridge, with Pedro making the most of a defensive mix-up to punish the travelling Red Devils.

Gary Cahill would convert a second from a corner, before Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante put the match to bed with second-half goals.
