Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has banned chocolate and sugary snacks from being purchased at the Etihad, according to the Manchester Evening News.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has implemented a healthy eating plan for his players and this is now being applied to his coaching staff.
Although chocolate and snacks high on sugar will still be allowed on site, the report claims that Guardiola has banned his players and staff from buying them.
This is part of the Spaniard’s plan to ensure that everyone at the club is accustomed to a healthy lifestyle.
As soon as he arrived to the Manchester club, Guardiola banished several Manchester City players from first-team training for being overweight. Samir Nasri was one of those players, and was shown the door in the summer as he joined Spanish club Sevilla.
Silvia Tremoleda, who is currently Guardiola’s nutritionist and former dietitian to Lionel Messi, has been providing healthier meals for both the players and the staff at the club, with dishes consisting of fish, pasta and salad.
Guardiola will need his players to be in the best condition possible as Manchester City are still fighting to finish in the top four and they are looking to secure their first FA cup success since 2011.
