Milan stopper Philippe Mexes does not have a Twitter account, the player’s representative has confirmed.
Quotes from Twitter have been attributed to the French international over recent days, but his agent insists the account is fake.
“I want to underline that Mexes has no Twitter profile,” Olivier Jouanneaux told calciomercato.com on Wednesday.
“The statements which have been in the media recently do not belong to him,” continued the representative.
“Milan have already been informed of this and we have already started the procedure with Twitter to close that account.”
Mexes joined the San Siro giants in the summer after his contract at Roma expired.
