Pep Guardiola has introduced some changes at Manchester City training, according to forward Gabriel Jesus.
The Blues are back together at the City Football Academy preparing for the resumption of the 2019/20 campaign after two months of enforced individual programmes.
There were strict measures in place to facilitate the return of the players in May, and the group have now worked up to be able to take part in full contact training with their first match back on June 17 against Arsenal.
Jesus admits the initial restrictions on what they could and couldn't do made things strange for the players, although it has improved. And Guardiola has used the time away from the training ground to freshen up what the squad are working on ahead of a campaign that could yet yield another two trophies even if the Premier League is in all likelihood beyond them.
“The return was a bit weird. We arrive at the training ground and we can’t use all of the facilities, so it’s weird, but we knew from the beginning that we were only allowed to train in small groups," said the forward.
"As soon as that changed and we were able to train as a group, it got better.
“The concept is always the same. There are one or two things that have changed, but I will not be revealing them here!
"Pep is creative and intense, so he always has ways to make sure that the players’ fusion always works. This is something that he always does, especially now after three months without games and that’s good.
"It is a tough moment in the Premier League; very difficult for us to win the league, but we still have two more trophies to fight for.”
