Nasri Reveals Why Pep Guardiola Banned Players From Knacking After Midnight

Samir Nasri has revealed how one of Pep Guardiola’s first acts as Manchester City manager was to ban every player from having se’x after midnight — even if they were off the next day.
pep-guardiola1The midfielder told L’Equipe:

‘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.’

The former Arsenal midfielder went on to call Guardiola a ‘picky person’ because his attention to detail went beyond anything he had seen.

Nasri who is currently on loan at La Liga club Sevilla added;

‘With Guardiola, on the first day of training, you know how you should play, how to squeeze and also how to stand off the ball. ‘The next day, you have videos for everything that you have to do.

‘He will not bully you, but he will do everything to make you progress, to get you to know you how to position yourself and how to play. He’s a picky person.’

    This measure taken by him is still a wise one anyway…………
