Tottenham defender Kyle Walker is taking a break from Twitter to concentrate on his game amid criticism from some fans.
Walker, who is a father himself, added there could be children following his tweets.
He said: "I want to be a role model. So it's difficult what you can tweet. Obviously, though, you don't want to be abused, either.
"So, I'm cautious in what I say. I've chosen my words wisely. When I didn't have anything good to say, I've just come off it."
