Guardiola videos bore Man City squad – Zabaleta

Short sessions in front of the television are part of the coach’s daily routine — but they are not enjoyed by some.

PABLO ZABALETA HAS admitted that some members of Manchester City’s squad are bored by manager Pep Guardiola’s persistent video analysis.

The Argentine defender has praised the manager’s relentless drive for improvement but says the short attention span of some means that they are not fans of the daily sessions.

“We watch a lot of videos, and sometimes I know it’s a bit boring for some of the players to be watching videos every day,” he told Talksport. “But [it’s great] for the players who really love football and enjoy watching … I’m talking about 20 minutes of video, or 25 minutes, not an hour or two hours!”

The 32-year-old has explained that the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss uses the time to show what he wants from his players.

He’s always trying to improve the players and to improve the team,” he said.

“He likes to play out from the back and for the player on the ball to have two or three options.

He likes always to give you solutions and information. The way he prepares for games is just fantastic.”

City lie third in the Premier League standings, 12 points short of Chelsea with 10 games remaining.
