How Man City staff are monitoring player fitness during football lockdown

Published on: 01 April 2020

Manchester City players are in daily conversation with the team doctor as they work to stay fit during the football lockdown.

The squad have been on their own for almost three weeks, having been sent home from the training ground in the days immediately following the postponement of their Premier League fixture with Arsenal.

Each player has had their own individual routine designed by the coaching staff in an attempt to keep fitness levels up even if work on the ball will prove more difficult during this extraordinary period. More gym equipment has been sent as it has been needed to allow the Blues to stick to their cardio and strength training.

As part of the new routine, the players are in regular contact with the team manager and medical staff to make sure there are no issues.

"I think the club have been very supportive," said midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.

"Max Sala our doctor sends me a text every day to make sure I'm okay and I'm sure he does that with the other players, and the club is also there for us. We just got some gym equipment sent over to be able to do even more and even better and our team manager also makes sure that I'm well and good.

"I try to stay in touch with the physios as well. We are all well connected and wait to get back."

City's squad are also keeping themselves amused in the players' WhatsApp group, as well as checking in with manager Pep Guardiola.
