Chico: West Ham play ugly football

Swansea defender Chico Flores has hit back at West Ham fans for failing to recognise the aggression that earned Andy Carroll a red card at the weekend, saying they should be more concerned with their team's "ugly" brand of football.

Thorne: Carroll appeal flounders

England striker Carroll twice set up goals for Kevin Nolan before being sent off as 10-man West Ham beat Swansea 2-0 at Upton Park to ease their relegation worries on Saturday.

Carroll, making his third start of the season and long heralded as the Hammers' likely saviour by manager Sam Allardyce, was sent off 14 minutes into the second half by referee Howard Webb for an altercation with Chico, after appearing to brush the Spaniard with his elbow.

Chico took to Twitter on Wednesday evening to respond to those critical of his involvement in the incident, writing: "I'm a bit tired of the strong insults from the west Ham fans. Whoever doesn't see the aggression in that action is blind."

In another tweet, he took the time to take a shot at the West Ham faithful for good measure.

He added: "Ok West Ham 2 - 0 Swansea... Swansea 24 Points. West Ham 22 Points. Hahaha. Smart !! Good luck.”

Chico also looked ahead to this weekend's South Wales derby against Cardiff, which the Swans will head into under the guidance of new head coach Garry Monk following the departure of Michael Laudrup.

He wrote: "Saturday Swansea - Cardiff. Come on Swanseaaa !!! #JackBastards #Swans.”
