Pep Guardiola Reveals What He Said In Angry Exchange With Nathan Redmond

Pep Guardiola Reveals What He Said In Angry Exchange With Nathan Redmond

"I didn't know him last season, I realised how good he is" was what Guardiola claimed before Redmond came to his support. Redmond released a statement saying Guardiola "was very passionate, intense and aggressive but he was only very complimentary and positive to me".

Pep Guardiola has admitted he regrets his extraordinary post-match exchange with Southampton's Nathan Redmond that has brought him to the attention of the disciplinary department of the Football Association.

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

Pep Guardiola regrets pushing Nathan Redmond and concedes he is incapable of controlling his emotions during and after matches.

"But they didn't' want to play, they were time wasting from the ninth minute". What I said is what I said and what Nathan said in his statement. "If people don't believe me, we should cancel the press conference".

That led to suggestions that Guardiola might have been undermining Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino but the City boss has denied this.

"I never judge and never will judge the way my opponents play against my team", Guardiola said. All the managers want to help their players because if they play bad we'll be sacked.

Despite Raheem Sterling's 96th minute victor against Southampton, most of the post-match talk has been around what was said between Guardiola and Redmond.

"I've faced this kind of team a lot in my career and I have to think how to beat them". "Last season he destroyed us here".

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.
