Man Utd legend Neville warns players about social media ‘authenticity’ after Foden tweet to Mbappe
The Manchester City star is one of several footballers to have seen representatives trusted to post on their behalf deliver questionable messages
Manchester United legend Gary Neville has warned high-profile sportspeople that trusting representatives to manage their social media activity is putting their “authenticity at stake”, after a controversial message to Kylian Mbappe was posted on Phil Foden’s account.
After finding the target in the Champions League victory over Borussia Dortmund that has seen City book a semi-final date with Paris Saint-Germain, a message appeared on Foden’s official Twitter account that read: “@KMbappe are you ready”.
The post has since been deleted, with many questioning the tone of a tweet as the England international becomes the latest footballer left to regret allowing others to take control of his public voice.
