Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson is considering banning players from using social media sites, such as Twitter, saying he would rather they ‘read a book’, according to The Guardian.
The biggest users of the site are reported to be Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand, who attracted nearly a million followers, with Michael Owen and Nani among other users.
It comes after Wayne Rooney threatened a follower on the site after a comment, but later said it wasn’t a serious threat.
Despite Facebook being one of the biggest social media marketing sites online, Alex Ferguson says he doesn’t understand it.
He said: “I don’t understand it, to be honest with you. I don’t know why anybody can be bothered with that kind of stuff. How do you find the time to do that? There are a million things you can do in your life without that. Get yourself down to the library and read a book. Seriously. It is a waste of time. It seems to have a certain momentum at the moment. Everyone seems to want to do it.”
