Guardiola explains incident with Nathan Redmond

Manchester City's David Silva celebrates scoring his side's second goal during the English Premier League soccer match against West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium Manchester England Sunday Dec. 3 2017

Guardiola's behaviour appeared to be aggressive but he claimed afterwards he was merely praising Redmond's attacking qualities - something the once-capped England worldwide corroborated in a statement issued on Thursday to refute allegations made by The Sun newspaper that the City boss directed foul and abusive language towards him.

The FA will then decide whether Guardiola, who also encroached onto the pitch to celebrate when Raheem Sterling scored City's 95th-minute victor, should face a disrepute charge following his conduct. I just wanted them to play'. Hopefully I will improve.

During his post-match interview, Guardiola claimed he was telling Redmond that he was wasting time from the ninth minute. "Last season he destroyed us here and I didn't know him". I said what I said and what Nathan said in his statement.

"When you spend 400 million or more in last two years, expect teams to defend as they can't compete on normal terms with you", Roberts concluded.

"When I give you an opinion, I give you an opinion", former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager Guardiola told reporters. Redmond released a statement saying Guardiola "was very passionate, intense and aggressive but he was only very complimentary and positive to me".

Southampton manager Pellegrino refused to be drawn on the issue, insisting he still has not seen the incident or discussed it with Redmond. "I will never judge the way my opponents want to play against my teams because I don't like the other managers judging what I want to do", he added. "It's the same as I do to beat them".

"I played against millions of managers in my career and the different ways they play". "My emotion was there because of how I celebrated, scored the goal after 96 minutes".

Redmond explained that "nothing negative or offensive was said towards me" and concluded: "Sadly this story is an example of lazy journalism and is a complete joke".
