– Samir Nasri had revealed that the Manchester City manager has banned players from sexual activities after modnight
– Pep Guardiola denies the report saying ‘good sex makes better players’
– The no-nonsense manager had earlier banned City players from using internet at the club’s training base
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has denied allegations that he refrained his players from having sex after midnight.
Samir Nasri who is out on loan at La Liga side Sevilla had revealed that the former Barcelona tactician imposed the rule so players get “a good night’s sleep”.
In his reaction, the 45-year-old manager denied the claims saying he encourages his player to engage in more sex.
“It is impossible to play good football if you don’t make sex with your partner,” said Guardiola. “I never did that and I would never ban that. If you are doing it… better players.”
Nasri revealed that the manager tells his players to have relationships before midnight as he considers rest very vital for his players.
The player eventually left Manchester City to join Sevilla on loan in August after managing just 15 minutes of Premier League football under the new manager at the Etihad Stadium.
Recall that the no-nonsense manager had earlier banned City players from using internet at the club’s training base and Aguero disclosed why.
It seems that one time, he entered the massage rooms and saw one of my team-mates, I don’t know who it was, relaxing with his phone and, I don’t know, maybe he did not like it. From then, he cut the internet.”
“In the dressing room, where everything is all closed [off], there is no signal. Therefore one can only use the wi-fi. I said: ‘Is the wi-fi broken? What happened?
In this place I am preparing the orange juice, and they [team-mates] were asking if the internet was working. ‘I think it’s broken,’ I said. I thought they were messing with me but it was right. He had cut the internet,” Aguero said.
