FA seeks Guardiola's observations after Redmond exchange

Adjust Comment Print

In an extremely animated exchange with the Saints' Nathan Redmond, which initially appeared to be aggravated and fiery, the City boss was seen remonstrating something or other with the full-back.

The Southampton winger took to Twitter to reveal what was said to him by City's manager, stating that Guardiola was telling Redmond to attack his team more in the same way he did last season.

Raheem Sterling scored a 96th minute victor for Manchester City at the Etihad and broke Southampton's hearts following a valiant defensive effort from the Saints.

"It happened in Munich when I was with my old player, lovely player, Joshua Kimmich". Mourinho was also reluctant to discuss Guardiola's heated post-match discussion with Southampton forward Nathan Redmond for similar reasons.

Nevertheless, Guardiola's unusual display has prompted the FA to ask him to explain his version of events by Monday.

"If they want to listen to me, I will do it".

"Yes he was very passionate, intense and aggressive but he was only very complimentary and positive to me", Redmond said.

"When I give you an opinion, I give you an opinion", former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager Guardiola told reporters. I say I am not surprised. That led to suggestions that Guardiola might have been undermining Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino but the City boss has denied this. All the managers want to help their players because if they play bad we'll be sacked.

'You know, if you are my friends, don't ask me the question, because you know I get into trouble, so no'.

"I never judge and never will judge the way my opponents play against my team", Guardiola said.

City's win over Southampton came courtesy of a 96th minute goal from Sterling, the third time in eight days the England striker had scored a late decider. That's it. Nothing negative or offensive was said towards me from Pep and that's what makes him one of the best managers in world football.
