Guardiola bans junk food


Pep Guardiola has banned junk food from Manchester City's training ground and had warned overweight players they risk being made to train away from the first-team.

Guardiola won 14 trophies in four years as Barcelona coach, before winning the Bundesliga three times with Bayern Munich and he has wasted little time in introducing his strict policies at Manchester City.

One of those includes banning 'heavy' food and banning overweight players from training with the first-team.

Defender Gael Clichy admits it is change from their normal practice but he is happy to embrace Guardiola's methods if it means City are ready for the new Premier League season.

"If your weight is too high, you're not training with the team," Clichy explained.

"You hear it a lot but, for my part, it's the first time any manager has really done it. And we have a few players who are not training with the team yet.

"You have to know that if your weight is 60 kilos and you are on 70 kilos, then you cannot play football.

"He cut out some juice and, of course, pizza and all the heavy food is not allowed.

"Some people think that's normal but, in truth, it's not always like this. I know because I've been playing football for a long time. It's really refreshing and very exciting."
