“I don’t have Twitter or Facebook and my Instagram is very private,” he said.
“I tend not to look at other interviews, how other clubs are doing or what the fans are saying.
“That’s just the way I switch off. A lot of the boys will say things and I will say ‘well how do you know that?’ They will tell me it’s on Twitter or something.
“It’s an advantage for me because when you are in a position like this and you are exposed to negativity and anxiety then you feed off it.
“I just try to make sure I am in a space where I can only concentrate on what is needed to do the job.”
