The 50-year-old former central defender also criticised Dimitri Payet for his tackle on Cristiano Ronaldo in the first half of the encounter.

The West Ham United attacking midfielder made what appeared to be a rough tackle on the Real Madrid forward in the first half of the game.

Ronaldo suffered a knee injury as a result of the tackle and had to be stretched off soon after.
