Ah Snap! In an Insta all those Twits have had to make an about Face(book).

Or something like that.

Jose Mourinho has cracked down on his Manchester United players’ use of social media after becoming hacked off with the club being portrayed in a bad light.

We’re not sure what he could be talking about…Was it for this that Jesse Lingard and the lads almost died at Upton Park a year ago?

According to The Independent, Mourinho has banned his players from posting to social media from the team bus, from training or at all in the 48 hours leading up to a game.

Considering United’s congested schedule in May, that will seriously impact on the ability of Paul Pogba, Lingard and Martial to connect with their fans via social media.

Luke Shaw’s posting pictures of himself training at home back in November as he returned from injury has, according to Jack Pitt-Brooke, particularly angered Mourinho as it looked like the club was not providing the full-back with all the support he needed.
