Sir Alex Ferguson accuses David Luiz of being unprofessional after he was caught smiling following a challenge by Rafael da Silva.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has hit out at Chelsea defender David Luiz by accusing the Brazilian of being unprofessional following a challenge by Rafael da Silva.

The United right-back was sent off during yesterday's 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford for kicking out at Luiz, who was caught by cameras smiling after he fell to the ground.

Ferguson, who has insisted that Rafael was provoked by Luiz elbowing him twice, believes that the Chelsea player's reaction was poor.

"He was smiling," the Daily Mail quotes Ferguson as saying. "It's bad. What kind of professional is that?"

Following the result, Chelsea moved back up into third place in the table.
