Guardiola has enjoyed great success at Manchester City and part of that is down to his uncompromising demands, one of which is the weight limit he will allow his players to reach.

The former Manchester City striker was fined if his weight exceeded 80 kilograms

“If your ideal weight is 79-80 kg and you weigh 80 kilos and 100 grams, you get fined and you don’t play,” Aguero said.

‘But it can happen! If you come across some chicken, for example, then you’re going to be 50 grams over the top!’

But did Guardiola really banish Aguero, who left Man City after scoring 184 Premier League goals, to the 100+ gram bench?

“Well, the first season we were between fourth and third and he told me ‘I left you because you got fat this week’. And what was she going to say? He was right… these things happen.

He said it in a good way. And at that time she really didn’t trust her. But I was always very respectful towards the coaches…’

Agüero and Guardiola did not seem to agree on the style of play that they both sought to adopt on the pitch.

When the Catalan coach arrived, changing the way Aguero pressured defenders was central to his plans.

“When I arrived, Guardiola asked me to put a lot of pressure on the central defenders and then I had no oxygen to attack,” he added.

“I wasn’t used to pressing, but Guardiola taught me how to do it.”

Pep Guardiola and Aguero had to work closely together from the start as Aguero didn’t press in the way his manager wanted.
