FIGC Vice-President Demetrio Albertini confirms Italy will “work with the players” to agree limits on social networking.
Questions were raised after Mario Balotelli responded to a newspaper headline via Twitter, while Dani Osvaldo famously insulted his then-Roma Coach Aurelio Andreazzoli on the same site.
“We will work with the players to find rules we all agree on,” said Albertini after Cesare Prandelli announced there will be a limit on social networks during the World Cup.
“There has to be a balance between freedom of expression, private lives and professional activity that necessitates the right method of communication.”
