Guardiola asked to explain Redmond incident by FA

Pep Guardiola

Redmond certainly didn't look as though he welcomed Guardiola's approach in the wake of Raheem Sterling's injury-time victor that secured Manchester City's narrow, 2-1 victory over Southampton although he subsequently insisted the Spaniard had offered nothing but positive words of advice.

Guardiola approached Redmond moments after Raheem Sterling had scored a 96th-minute victor for the league leaders at Etihad Stadium.

Guardiola has until Monday to respond to the FA's request for an explanation of the exchange.

In his postmatch news conference, Guardiola said he told Redmond: "Last season he destroyed us here".

"I also spoke with Oriol, with Van Dijk and with my players", said Guardiola and added, "I apologized to the referee for the way I celebrated the last goal, but I could not control myself".

"What I said is what I said and what Nathan Redmond said in his statement yesterday", he continued. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less.

We have lost games here against Man United where we didn't deserve anything. "I didn't see the red card", Mourinho said. Mourinho added: "I told De Gea after the match, what I saw today was the best from a goalkeeper in the world.

"I want to make it absolutely clear Pep Guardiola did not say what the Sun is falsely claiming in this story", Redmond said. Guardiola said: "I have played against millions of managers and the different ways they play". He is a player I would like to keep at the club.

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

Redmond has since played down the incident, stating there was nothing aggressive or offensive in what Guardiola said to him.

Mauricio Pellegrino praised Nathan Redmond's response to his face-off with Pep Guardiola after the midfielder helped Southampton rescue a point at Bournemouth. Today, he could not attack because they defended all the time. All the managers want to help their players because if they play bad we'll be sacked.

The Spaniard said after the game that he was telling 23-year-old "how good a player he is" and how he was unhappy that he didn't openly attack City and instead played for the draw.

Guardiola has previous in terms of animated on-field encounters, most famously with Joshua Kimmich after his Bayern Munich team drew 0-0 with Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park in 2016.
