Prandelli: Italy players to decide on social media

May 17, 2014

MILAN (AP) — Italy coach Cesare Prandelli says his players will decide themselves on how they want to use social media during the World Cup.

Some teams are expected to ban players from using social networks, but Prandelli says he will discuss it with his squad at the training camp.

Prandelli says, “The first point of the agenda on Tuesday will be that of social networks. It’s not a problem for me. I hope the players will decide on a common line. I like for the squad to take on responsibility and to be involved in decisions.”

This will also be the first time family members are allowed into the training camp.

Prandelli adds, “It will be good for the group. The harmony and the presence of children will help temper the huge amount of tension that exists.”
