Giggs has pop at Senegal over robust challenges

Ryan Giggs has claimed Senegal's Sadio Manu could have been sent off three times for the challenges he made in the 1-1 draw with Great Britain, reports BBC Sport. Giggs was unhappy with some of the tackles in the match, which left goalscorer Craig Bellamy and Joe Allen doubtful for the team's next game.

"In a Premier League game he [Manu] would probably have been sent off three times," said Giggs.

"There were a few naughty challenges. A few of our lads are struggling now."

Senegal's coach, Aliou Cisse, insisted there was nothing wrong with his side's approach to the game, and said: "I can't say I saw a bad tackle on the pitch.

"I am surprised at what people are saying, given this is Great Britain, where they talk so much about fighting spirit."
