CHICO Flores has hit out at West Ham's fans - and the London club's playing style - in the wake of Andy Carroll's red card at Upton Park last weekend.
Swansea City star Flores has been widely criticised for making too much of a clash with Carroll which led to the England targetman being sent off.
But the Spanish centre-back has used his Twitter page to respond to the flak.
Alongside footage of the Carroll incident, Flores wrote: "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.
"They should be more preoccupied with the ugly way their team play football: always making very long passes and never quick short passing.
"They should be worried about that before caring about such evident things."
Carroll lost his appeal against the red card shown to him by English World Cup referee Howard Webb.
The former Liverpool striker's arm appeared to connect with the top of Flores's head.
He has been criticised for going down clutching his face.
