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

"I told him I was doing what my manager had asked me to do in the game". You can agree or not, but if I'm explaining what happened and the people don't believe me then let's cancel our press conferences and just play the games.

Redmond has since said the Spaniard was "only very complimentary and positive".

During his post-match interview, Guardiola claimed he was telling Redmond that he was wasting time from the ninth minute.

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.

Redmond's comments support Guardiola's version of events, with the manager insisting he had not been critical of Redmond in their animated conversation. "I said to Nathan: 'You are a good player and you have to attack'". The Spanish coach said, "I can't control myself and I have to make an effort to improve".

"[I told him] how good a player he is", Guardiola said.

Guardiola was captured on camera addressing Southampton star Redmond enthusiastically at full-time, an incident which had everyone second guessing about what was said during the heated exchange. "I never judge and never will judge the way my opponents play against my team". We didn't win clearly because it's so complicated when 10 players defend in the box. 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.

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.

The Sky Blues' next outing will see them host West Ham United on Sunday, where they'll look to continue their title charge with another win. All the managers want to help their players because if they play bad we'll be sacked. "Last season he destroyed us here".
