Pep Guardiola: Man City manager regrets Nathan Redmond outburst

Pep Guardiola: Man City manager regrets Nathan Redmond outburst

He added: "I told him I was doing what my manager had asked me to do in the game". If people don't believe me, we should cancel our press conference.

"But they didn't' want to play, they were time wasting from the ninth minute".

Raheem Sterling scored a 96th-minute victor as the hosts continued their 12-match winning run.

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

"I said [to the referee] I apologise because i couldn't control it, I was so happy like all the fans and players. I said to Nathan you are a good player and you have to attack". I didn't know him last season and didn't realise how good he is.

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

The former Norwich City player took to Twitter to release a statement about the incident, and he said that Guardiola was complimenting him and giving him some tactical advice about his own game and own style of play. "I never judge and never will judge the way my opponents play against my team".

"It's so complicated when teams defend with ten players. It's the same as I do to beat them".

'Nothing negative or offensive was said towards me from Pep and that's what makes him one of the best Manager's in world football'.

The Citizens pipped the Saints to all three points on Wednesday night thanks to goals from Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling, but it was what happened after the match that caught everyone's attention and got everyone talking.

Guardiola faces a tough selection issue for Sunday's visit of struggling with West Ham - with Vincent Kompany, Leroy Sane and Fernandinho all one booking away from a suspension that would rule them out of the Manchester derby a week later.

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

That followed a similar, injury-time victor at Bournemouth and a point-saving late equaliser with Everton, the only team to have avoided defeat against rampant City this season.
