Manchester City boss Guardiola has stressed his hardline approach to fitness and conditioning following left-back Gael Clichy's claims that he had banned pizza and banished individuals from first-team training for not hitting their weight targets.
"Normally I'm not a guy to say 'you can't eat that', I don't know what they eat normally. They eat what the nutritionist decides," said Guardiola.
"They were not overweight (at the start of pre-season), but I want my players fit. For me, weight is so, so important.
"We need to run, we need to fight... after three days (do it) again, after three days again, three days again.
"When you are not fit and your weight is not proper, danger is coming. That's why I want my players absolutely fit."
A lot of people on social media are convinced that Pep is talking about Sergio Aguero.

But, to be fair, an equal number are dismissing the comments as a ridiculous overreaction to a single unflattering picture.
If that's Aguero looking overweight then consider us jealous. Beast.July 28, 2016
I bet most of those questioning the condition of Kun Aguero would love to have him in their team pic.twitter.com/1W0A1k4338— Sponge Sports (@monkey_sponge) July 27, 2016
Aguero doesn't look "fat" at all tbh, gained a bit of weight but nothing too serious— billy (@billymcfc_) July 28, 2016
