Cardiff City Manager Demands Focus as Social Media Banned

By Community | May 2, 2012

Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay has banned the team from using social media sites Twitter and Facebook in order to keep them focused for their playoff semi-final against West Ham.

The Bluebirds are due to face West Ham United on home turf tomorrow before the return fixture at Upton Park on Monday, cough and the Scotsman has insisted that there will be no distractions. 

“I want the players focused on their game, their training and the two matches coming up,” BBC Sport quotes Mackay as saying. 

“All focus is on that and no focus is on anything else other than just living the best they can for the next seven days because there will be so many rewards for that.” 

If Cardiff manage to clinch a two-leg victory over the Hammers, the Welsh side will go up against either Birmingham City or Blackpool for the final promotion spot to the Premier League.
