“Left out because you got fat!”

Pep Guardiola obviously attaches great importance to the ideal weight of his protégés. This emerges from an anecdote from his ex-player Sergio Aguero.

“In our first season, he said to me, ‘I left you out because you got fat this week.’ And what should I say? He was right. Things like that happen,” Agüero told the Spanish TV show El Chiringuito.

In general, Guardiola would have taken the weight issue very seriously and would not have allowed even the smallest deviations. “If your ideal weight is 79-80kg and you weigh 80kg and 100g then you would not play and you would be fined,” Aguero continued. That could happen “very quickly”. “Just a little bit of chicken and you’re already 50 grams over it.”

Agüero had played under Guardiola at Manchester City for a total of five years before moving to FC Barcelona in the summer of 2021 and ending his career a little later.

After the Argentine left Manchester, his family criticized Guardiola’s handling of the striker. “He never liked Kun,” said Aguero father Leonel de Castillo
