Former Old Trafford ace Forlan, disagrees with any boss singling out a player.
He told The Sun: “It's not correct for a manager to criticise a player in public. Yes, I'm a player, but I have been in football long enough to know that criticism should be kept private.
“There is an increasing demand in football for access to know everything about the lives of players.
“The players themselves can be complicit. They post pictures of themselves holidaying on social media as the lines between their private and public lives become blurred.
“Burglars are happy about such postings because they can see when footballers are away.
“Fans want information and we have to move with the times, but some things should still remain private – just as they should in any company of any relationship."
