Redmond reveals what went on with him and Pep Guardiola

Redmond reveals what went on with him and Pep Guardiola

In an extremely animated exchange with the Saints' Nathan Redmond, which initially appeared to be aggravated and fiery, the City boss was seen remonstrating something or other with the full-back.

"[I told him] how good a player he is", Guardiola said.

Redmond has insisted no offence was taken and confirmed the City manager's claims he was merely complimenting the Southampton winger after Raheem Sterling's goal deep into stoppage time sealed a win that kept Guardiola's men eight points clear at the top of the table. "I did it in [Bayern] Munich, with my old player Kimmich, I did the same. I have to do that, hopefully I can improve".

"I admire Redmond as a player and say thank you for his comments, but if the FA want my statement again I am able to explain whatever they want".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has this afternoon passed comment on the FA's decision not to punish Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola for his recent antics during the Citizens' clash with Southampton. "I just wanted them to play", he said. What I said is what I said and what Nathan said in his statement. I didn't know him last season and didn't realise how good he is.

Speaking at a news conference to preview Sunday's Premier League game against West Ham, Guardiola was asked whether he regretted his actions and simply replied: "Yes".

Guardiola insisted that his aggression was as a result of Southampton's time-wasting.

Guardiola said he would "never judge the way opponents play against one of my teams".

"You know - if you are my friends, don't ask me the question, because you know I get into problems".

"I played against millions of managers in my career and the different ways they play".

"It is the same as what I do to beat them".

Redmond explained that "nothing negative or offensive was said towards me" and concluded: "Sadly this story is an example of lazy journalism and is a complete joke".
