Guardiola Introduces Training-Ground Fines at Man City

Pep Guardiola has introduced a new set of fines in a bid to keep his Manchester City players on their toes.

Guardiola has been ramming home the dangers of complacency during team meetings since the start of the season.

He also wants them to be more resilient in the face of set-backs in big matches, such as the high-profile defeats to Liverpool and Manchester United in April.

As part of his drive to focus minds, Guardiola has taken steps to improve behaviour around the training ground.

The Catalan has banned the use of mobile phones in analysis sessions and team meetings at the club’s City Football Academy, although players are allowed to use their phones inside the dressing room.

Left-back Benjamin Mendy has vowed not to use his phone in the dressing room, however, after Guardiola warned him publicly to spend less time on social media and focus more on his football.

Mendy was also fined for turning up late to training ahead of the start of the season, another example of the sanctions handed out to the City squad.
