Tottenham Hotspur defender Malachi Fagan-Walcott has revealed that he is set to take a break from social media as he continues his rehabilitation from injury.
Fagan-Walcott is thought of very highly at the club, having risen through the ranks of the club’s youth system.
The 18-year-old, who has represented England at Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 age grades signed his first professional contract with Spurs, a week after Jose Mourinho took over as head coach.
The teenager has been training with the first-team at Spurs and was even-handed his senior debut for the club back in March when he came on as a second-half substitute during the 3-0 loss against RB Leipzig.
The central defender had to undergo surgery earlier this month for an undisclosed injury.
Fagan-Walcott has now taken to Instagram to add to his story to reveal that he will be taking a hiatus from social media as he continues working hard to recover from the operation.
The Spurs academy graduate wrote: “I will be taking a break off my social media for a little bit, while I work hard and grind my way back from injury.”

Spurs Web Opinion
I personally do think it is beneficial for young, up and coming footballers to be active on social media. They can be subject to harsh criticism from the fans, which could affect their confidence as they might not have the maturity to cope with it.
Tanganga in many respects seems like the polar opposite of what many young players are like these days. He seems extremely focussed on his football and does not seem interested in the media attention that comes with being a footballer. Fagan-Walcott will do well to take a leaf out of Tanganga’s book and make football his main focus.
