first_imgIt is understood that former Nigerian junior international Iheanacho is one of the players whose fitness Guardiola has questioned.The player, who impressed under former coach Manuel Pellegrini, scoring 14 goals in all competitions last season, weighs 79kg which the coach considers to be excessive for a professional footballer and should be reduced.French defender Gael Clichy says he is fully behind Guardiola’s approach.“For my part, it’s the first time any manager has really done it,” added the 31-year-old. “And we have a few players who are not training with the team yet.“If your weight is too high, you’re not training with the team. You have to know that if your weight is 60 kilos and you are on 70 kilos, then you cannot play football.“Some people think that’s normal but, in truth, it’s not always like this. I know because I’ve been playing football for a long time. It’s really refreshing and very exciting,” Clichy said.It would be recalled that Guardiola, who left Bayern Munich at the end of last season, initially left out Iheanacho from Man City’s squad of 32 players that left for China on July 19 for reasons that were not specified.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram From Olawale Ajimotokan in AbujaSuper Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho has been embargoed by coach Pep Guardiola from training with the Manchester City first team until he reduces his weight to an approved threshold.Reports out of England yesterday said that some of City’s top players on pre season tour of China were outlawed by Guadiola from the first team because of they were not fit.According to the BBC, Guardiola gave order to the players to avoid pizza, some juice and certain “heavy food”.“They are not overweight, but I want my players fit,” said the new City boss.“The weight is so important. When you are not fit, danger is coming. You’re not fast enough or quick enough in the head. That’s why you need to be fit.” Guardiola said.Man City will meet Borussia Dortmund Thursday in the International Champions Cup in Shenzhen, China.last_img read more

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisOne of kids’ favorite times of the year, summer break, is right around the corner. It’s a perfect time to get outdoors and enjoy the sun, but literacy sometimes suffers with the extended time away from academics. Alpena Public Schools is working to make sure that doesn’t happen.Students at Hink’s Elementary participated in a summer reading kick–off today, just before break starts. Instructional coach, Jennifer Marceau, says this is the perfect way to get parents involved, and kids interested in reading.“So what we did today is we just kind of introduced parents to ideas they can utilize at home while they’re working with their students. Just some ideas. Some are water coloring, getting out chalk to play on a sidewalk, write their sight words or their fry words. We also had in there just showing them how to read with their kids, explaining how to read with them. We also had sand to play with different activities that you can incorporate into just simply playing in the sand.”Students from junior kindergarten through first grade will be sent home with a packet containing all the books they’ll need, as well as an interactive app to track progress and engage parents. The school hopes the children will return in the fall ready to pick up right where they left off.“Our major goal here is to try to stop the summer slide because many kids, if they’re not picking up a book or they’re not reading, summer slide happens and we’re hoping to close that gap and not have kids come in having summer slide. So encourage them to read as much as they can throughout the summer.”AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Hinks, Literacy, Reading, Summer, summer reading programContinue ReadingPrevious Jeff Wallace Memorial Golf Outing to benefit youth sports this summerNext Twenty-two arrested in mid-Michigan sting operation to catch child predatorslast_img read more
