Guardiola regrets Redmond rant after City victory

Adjust Comment Print

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola talks to Southampton's Nathan Redmond, who looks dejected, at the end of the match.

Taking to Twitter, Redmond wrote: "Yes he was very passionate, intense and aggressive but he was only very complimentary and positive to me".

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

Guardiola's behaviour appeared to be aggressive but he claimed afterwards he was merely praising Redmond's attacking qualities, something the once-capped England worldwide corroborated in a statement issued on Friday (AEDT) to refute allegations made by The Sun newspaper that the City boss directed foul and abusive language towards him. If people don't believe me, we should cancel our press conference.

The manager explained after the game that he was simply complimenting Redmond, which the winger corroborated on Thursday. If they want to listen to me then I will do it. "I did it in Munich, with my old player (Joshua) Kimmich, I did the same in Dortmund and had regret there after the game and the same now. I can't say anything about that".

But having reviewed footage of the incident, the FA have sought Guardiola's version of events.

Raheem Sterling scored a sensational 96th-minute victor to send his side eight points clear at the top of the Premier League, setting a new club record of 12 Premier League wins in a row.

"It's so complicated when teams defend with ten players". Everyone wants to win the game, definitely.

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

'But they didn't want to play, they were time wasting from the ninth minute. All the managers want to help their players because if they play bad we'll be sacked. I said to Nathan you have to attack because you have the quality to do that.

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

While Southampton move up to 11th in table, Bournemouth climb up to 14th and five points clear of the relegation zone. It's really frustrating for us but I am happy for them. They are the team who have created one of the most chances until now.
