Dan Kilpatrick has reported that Tottenham Hotspur head coach, Jose Mourinho suggested in his press conference today that Spurs are considering a social media boycott.

The idea of a social media wide boycott has been discussed in recent times due to the trend of racist abuse directed towards players on the internet.

Just last week, Davinson Sanchez was subjected to racism on his Instagram account following Tottenham’s 2-2 draw against Newcastle.

After these racist messages, Tottenham as a club urged the social media platforms to take action against such abuse.

This week, Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson decided to hand over his social media accounts to an anti-bullying charity in an attempt to educate the wider community.

Mourinho said in his press conference that the club is currently thinking of their next actions and desire to make an impact. He also did not want to add anything more on the Sanchez situation but claimed the Colombian received a lot of internal love after the abuse.

He said (Dan Kilpatrick): “The club is thinking [about what to do]…the club, of course, wants to make an impact & the decision the club will make will be a decision, of course, we’ll accept and support.

“In relation to Davinson, there’s nothing more to add about the sadness of the situation. He found a lot of love internally because everyone loves him, everyone supports him.”
