Foster to Berahino: Delete your Twitter account

West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster has told his teammate Saido Berahino to forget the distractions of social media and concentrate on playing football.

The former England Under-21 international took to Twitter to voice his frustrations after a transfer in August failed to materialise.

It was reported that Newcastle United and Stoke City were interested in signing Berahino during the recent transfer window, but West Brom rejected all approaches, meaning he will remain at the club and fight for his place in the starting 11 under manager Tony Pulis.

The veteran goalkeeper has warned the unsettled striker to put his focus and energy into playing football and finding his form again.

"When the gaffer says that little incidents have gone on, they're just little silly things that he doesn't need to do," Foster said.

"These days with the likes of Twitter and Instagram, that kind of stuff, people are getting in touch with him from all different corners of the world. The best thing to do would be to delete all that rubbish and just focus on playing football.

"He knows he's here until the end of the season, it's as simple as that. You'd like to think he'll get his head down and get stuck in.

"He just doesn't need it. You saw when he came on that he offers a threat, he'll always score goals no matter where he goes because he is a natural goalscorer."
