Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has banned the use of wi-fi at the club’s training ground and Sergio Aguero believes it is because a player was caught using his phone while on the treatment table.
Guardiola is known for his strict methods and has imposed several disciplinary measures among City players, since he took over in the summer.
These include particular foods, sugary drinks and now Internet/social media when they are training.
Aguero, who is City’s top goalscorer, has explained what must have resulted in the latest rule.
The Argentine striker said: “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.
“I didn’t know anything about it. ‘What happened? We don’t have the internet here,’ I said.
“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.
“In the changing room, massage room and pool we don’t have the internet. Upstairs there is a little bit of 3G.”
