Nigeria youngster, Kelechi Iheanacho, might no longer be able to surf the web while in training according to new system introduced by Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola.
This revelation was made by Iheanacho’s teammate, Pablo Zabaleta, who claims the Spanish gaffer ordered connection to be disconnected in the club’s training ground.
Guardiola is famous for his passionate approach to the game and has already implemented some huge changes at the Etihad following his summer arrival from Bayern Munich.
As a result of this latest development, Iheanacho and his colleagues will no longer be allowed to use 3G on their phones.
“You always want and dream to be trained by the best coaches, and today I have the opportunity to work with one of the best,” the Argentine defender told Tyc Sports.
“Actually, you learn a lot, especially the way you live it. Beyond knowledge, his passion for football.
“He forces us to have breakfast and lunch together at the club. The internet is cut off, we are held incommunicado. We don’t even use 3G.”
Aside no longer being able to trawl the Internet, City players must now eat all their meals together in a bid to improve squad harmony, while calorific treats including pizza and fruit juice have been scrapped altogether.
Guardiola introduced a controversial “fat camp” for out-of-shape stars during pre-season, and he took things a step further by hiring key nutritionist, Silvia Tremoleda, last month.
The ex- Barcelona staff member personally worked with Lionel Messi and is credited with helping the Argentine get back on track after his injury-plagued season in 2013.
On the menu now are olive oil, whole grains, organic vegetables and nuts, but Guardiola’s wrath now appears to have extended beyond just the food.
City suffered their first defeat of the season on Sunday against Tottenham but will be hoping to bounce back after the international break.
