Samir Nasri reveals yet another ban that Guardiola has implemented
Since Pep Guardiola’s arrival to the Etihad Stadium, the Spanish manager has not only been making a number of changes within the pitch in itself but outside of it as well with strict bans being enforced from players not being able to utilize wifi in many of the training grounds of the club and another of the bans that Guardiola has enforced was prohibiting his players from eating specific food as he wants them to be fit and healthy for every single match.
However, it seems like these aren’t the only bans and restrictions that Pep Guardiola has placed on his Manchester City squad as Samir Nasri has recently revealed that they aren’t allowed to have sexual intercourse after midnight even if they do not have any kind of training session or a match on the following day.
Samir Nasri unveiled details concerning this restriction of not being able to have sex after midnight as the French midfielder said:
‘’Relations must be before midnight, even if you have a free day the following day. It's so you can have a good night's sleep. He told us this is how he managed to get the best out of Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski, and for them to avoid the maximum number of muscular injuries. He suppressed many things that were in the kitchen. Guardiola said that he placed this rule on Messi and his muscles improved since.”
According to Nasri, this sexual activity ban was also used when Guardiola was in charge of Barcelona with certain players or maybe the entire Spanish outfit not being able to have sexual intercourse and this apparently did have a positive effect to the players, especially with Lionel Messi who experienced having an improved muscle resistance and things of this nature.
