Pep Guardiola has banned the internet at Manchester City - much to Sergio Aguero's shock.

Sergio Aguero thought Pep Guardiola's internet ban was a joke

Whatever Pep Guardiola is doing at Manchester City is clearly working.

The Spaniard has guided the Citizens to 10 wins in 12 games since his arrival in the summer.

City have taken an early lead in the Premier League standings as they look to assert themselves as a dominant force in Europe.

The chances of that happening were greatly increased with Guardiola’s appointment. He’s a proven winner, having collected two Champions League trophies as well as three La Liga and three Bundesliga titles in his managerial career.

But it’s not just through his impressive tactical system that Guardiola has turned City into Premier League favourites. There have been changes away from the pitch, too.

It was recently revealed by Pablo Zabaleta that the 45-year-old had cut the internet at the club in an attempt to establish team spirit.

Considering how important the internet is in the modern era, it was certainly a shock to City’s players.


Sergio Aguero's reaction

Sergio Aguero even admitted he thought it was a joke.

“Yes, it’s true. He cut the internet," the striker told ESPN, per Goal. "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 you can only use the wifi. ‘Is the wifi broken? What happened?’

"In this place [below ground], I was preparing the orange juice, and they 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."

Blimey. Aguero is genuinely distraught that he can no longer access the internet.

Unnamed culprit 

The Argentine reckons Guardiola made the decision to cut the connection after spotting a City player using his phone when he shouldn’t have been.

Aguero continued: “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."

Is Guardiola's decision to ban internet access fair? Let us know in the comments section below!
