Marvin Sordell 'hooked on Facebook', says Dougie Freedman
Bolton manager says the striker has an "obsession"
Monday 07 January 2013
The Bolton Wanderers manager, Dougie Freedman, has revealed he is concerned with striker Marvin Sordell's persistent social networking.
Bolton players were issued with social media guidelines after Freedman took charge in October, and the former Crystal Palace manager has pinpointed Sordell as a problem.
"It could be bordering on an obsession with Twitter and Facebook and all the things that go on with these kids," said Freedman.
"We are trying to work with him – by taking his phone off him. We have just got to get him settled down and help him with some of the off-the-field antics."
Sordell has faced racial insults on Twitter in recent months after a young Millwall fan was banned for racially abusing him in October.
