"I don't think you can question the character, but there's an overall problem with the English national team and the culture has to change to build a successful national team," Giggs said on ITV.
"It is that whole washbag culture. I read a piece from Jamie Carragher and what he says is absolutely true. I didn't want to be famous, I wanted to be successful.
"Players now are rewarded before they even do anything - they have the nice cars, nice watches. They are robots, just robots. They're told what to do and there's no problem solving on the pitch."
