Fabio Capello

Coach Fabio Capello known for his disciplinarian attitude has imposed a social media black out on his Russian squad at the World Cup.

That means no Facebook, Twitter, Instagram nor any of the other forms of online communication until they leave Brazil.

The Italian, explaining his reasons for the draconian measure on Monday, said: “Players can’t use social media here.

“They must abstain for one month, then when they get home they can go crazy.”

Warming to his theme he continued: “Tweets sometimes can be a nuisance, if they’re not written in an intelligent fashion – so in order to prevent that nuisance I’d prefer to ask my players not to use social media.”

Capello was speaking in Cuiaba on the eve of Russia’s opening Group H game against South Korea.
