Soccer star Marvin Sordell has become addicted to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Bolton Wanderers' manager Dougie Freedman revealed the England Under-21 striker developed an "obsession" with the social networks.

According to the Sun, Freedman said it was a difficult time for Sordell because he had "not quite settled in" since his move up north.

Bolton first heard of Sordell's problems when he tweeted about racist abuse he and his team-mates received during a match at Millwall in October, which prompted Twitter trolls to target him with more, the report said.

Sordell vowed not to give in to them, telling his 24,300 followers that he will not leave twitter'

But his Twitter and Facebook accounts are now suspended. (ANI)
