Guardiola explains incident with Nathan Redmond

I didn't know him last season and didn't realise how good he is. "Yes he was very passionate, intense and aggressive but he was only very complimentary and positive to me".

City boss Guardiola has been asked to explain his version of events following his animated post-match conversation with Southampton forward Redmond.

Guardiola approached Redmond following City's last-minute 2-1 victory over Southampton where he started to seemingly shout at the 23-year old.

"I told him I was doing what my manager had asked me to do in the game".

Redmond has also said that Guardiola's words were encouraging, but Roberts has taken a different point of view and believes the Manchester City boss has no business telling an opposition footballer how to play. Redmond issued a statement on Twitter in response to growing media speculation, confirming "nothing negative or offensive was said".

However, after the final whistle, as the celebrations had died down and his own players and players from Southampton made their way off the Etihad Stadium pitch to return to the dressing rooms, it was clear that Guardiola's adrenaline rush had not left him.

"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".

"I played against millions in managers and the different ways they play", he said.

"Losing the game the way we did in the last kick of the game after working so hard for 90-plus minutes, I was very disappointed".

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

"I've faced this kind of team a lot in my career and I have to think how to beat them".
