Everton defender Keane learning to avoid social media

Everton defender Michael Keane says he's learned to avoid social media more.

Instead of reading the comments on social media, the defender has learned not to take anything to heart.

"It is not easy when things don't go well and everyone is on top of you. But I am mature enough to deal with that and not let it affect me too much," he said.

"It is not going to help me in any way, so I stay away from it. I go on Instagram now and again but not Twitter.

"One week you can have loads of good things said about you and the next week it's all bad. That's the way it is. You cannot take anything you see on social media to heart.

"My family have a look but don't tell me about it. I am sure it always annoys them. But I have got used to it and accepted it for what it is."
