SPAIN and England players have been told to tweet quiet during the World Cup
National team bosses Vicente Del Bosque and Fabio Capello have banned their teams from using social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.
Del Bosque wanted “no distractions” as the European Champions focussed on lifting the sport’s biggest prize.
Del Bosque announced the decision during a training camp, before the team jetted off to its South Africa base.
A spokesperson for the Spanish FA explained that Del Bosque wanted “no distractions” as the European Champions focussed on lifting the sport’s biggest prize.
The FA confirmed that Capello’s men will also not be allowed to write articles for newspapers during the tournament.
It insisted that the players will only offer their mid-tournament thoughts via the governing body’s official website.
