‘No mobile phones in working spaces’ –Pep Guardiola tells Man City players
The Spaniard wants to maintain the high standards set at the Etihad from their title-winning season
Pep Guardiola has introduced a ban on mobile phones 'in working spaces' at Manchester City.
The move is with a view to safeguarding any risk of standards dropping after their record-breaking season.
The Blues have started the season with 10 points from four games, but in Guardiola's relentless pursuit of perfection, a new fine system has been introduced.
A pre-agreed flat fee, no matter the player's seniority or wages, will be handed out for various infractions.
Lateness for training is one of those, with the Mail reporting Benjamin Mendy has already been stung with a fine for this violation already.
Mobile phones will be permitted in the dressing room, but Sergio Aguero and his team-mates will be forbidden from using phones in various 'working spaces' at the City Football Academy.
They include analysis sessions, team meetings, the gym and training pitches.
City will take on Fulham after the international break before beginning their Champions League campaign at home vs Lyon.
