Sports Science at Manchester City

Here are some great quotes from Manchester City Fitness Coach Ivan Carminati that I gleaned from this enlightening article. 

“Football is not a science, but science can help football improve”

“It’s very important that the player understands that they must be fit, and to be fit, they must work hard on the pitch. For example, last season we had all the squad come in to the gym before each training session to do something.”

Be sure to check out the article and watch the video, there’s some great info there.
