After a season where three Premier League footballers have gotten into trouble over their Twitter accounts revealing team or transfer info, league champions Manchester United have taken a no-nonsense policy to social media by apparently deleting all personal Twitter and Facebook pages.
Both Sunderland’s Darren Bent and Hull City’s Freddie Adu got into a spot of bother earlier this season by revealing info about Bent’s transfer to the North East club and Adu being dropped from the Hull squad respectively. Following on from these much publicised blunders Liverpool’s Ryan Babel tweeted “Hey everyone. I’ve got some disappointing news, I am not travelling to Stoke. The Boss left me out the squad. No explanation”, before last weekend’s fixtures. It seems that United are trying to make sure that none of their players make any similar online slip ups.
