Capello imposes Russia Twitter ban


Bookmark and Share

By Joe Haining

Tuesday 17 June 2014

Head coach Fabio Capello has told his Russian stars that they are not to use the social networking site during the World Cup, reports Corriere dello Sport.

The experienced Italian coach expressed his opinion that use of the popular site could be a nuisance, especially if players did not write messages in an “intelligent manner.” The players have apparently been told that they must abstain for the month-long duration of the tournament, but are free to resume their tweeting activity when they return home.


Misuse of Twitter has seen a number of footballers embroiled in scandals in recent years. Stars such as Ashley Cole, Emmanuel Frimpong, Rio Ferdinand and Carlton Cole have all received substantial fines for inappropriate tweets.


Capello, who turns 68 this week, has moved to ban his players from the site to avoid any such unwanted distractions during this World Cup.


His Russian team begin their campaign tonight against South Korea before going on to face the highly-rated Belgians and finally Algeria.


Not all bosses are being so strict with their players’ social media use though, evidenced yesterday after striker Lukas Podolski posted a celebratory ‘selfie’ with German chancellor Angela Merkel on his Twitter account.
