Man City players ordered off pizza in Guardiola fitness kick

SHENZHEN, China (AP) Manchester City players have been told not to eat junk food as new manager Pep Guardiola tries to turn the team into Premier League champions again.

"He cut out some juice and, of course, pizza," defender Gael Clichy was quoted as saying in British newspapers. "All the heavy food is not allowed."

While fans would expect such a strict diet to be the norm, Clichy said: "In truth, it's not always like this. I know because I've been playing football for a long time."
