Real Madrid coach wants to avoid distractions

AS understands that the former Spain boss, who was appointed at the Bernabéu in June, wants to be completely focused on Real's pre-season preparations and avoid any distractions.

After his side's 2-1 defeat to Manchester United in the International Champions Cup on Tuesday, Lopetegui today cancelled his profiles on Twitter - on which he had just over 140,000 followers - and Instagram.

Had used social media to show Benzema support

Though not a prolific poster, the 51-year-old had been known to make his presence felt on social media from time to time.

In July, for example, he published a photo of himself with Real striker Karim Benzema, in what was seen as a public show of support for the oft-criticised Frenchman.
