'I was telling Nathan Redmond how good he is at the end, ' Guardiola told the.

"He was very passionate, intense and aggressive - but he was only very complimentary and positive to me", the 23-year-old later said on social media.

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

Guardiola said he couldn't control himself and said he was also sorry for a similar incident during his time at Bayern Munich when he spoke to his own player Joshua Kimmich. 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 insisted no offence was taken and confirmed the City manager's claims that he was merely complimenting the Southampton winger. If they want to listen to me then I will do it.

He said: 'I didn't see too many actions to delay the game. The can do that with me, with Nathan and with The Sun.

Guardiola, who has until December 4 to respond to the FA, said after Wednesday's match that the reason he appeared to be exchanging angry words with Redmond was because of Southampton's "time-wasting" tactics.

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. "Last season he destroyed us here and I didn't know him".

"I know Pellegrino wanted to win the game, definitely". Never, never in my career and in press conference, on the pitch and off the pitch was I disrespectful about what they do to beat me. I never judge and never will judge the way my opponents play against my team.

"I've faced this kind of team a lot in my career and I have to think how to beat them".

City host West Ham at 16:00 GMT on Sunday, while Southampton travel to south-coast rivals Bournemouth at 13:30 on the same day. It's really frustrating for us but I am happy for them.

"I want to make it absolutely clear Pep Guardiola did not say what the Sun is falsely claiming in this story", Redmond said.

"I played against millions in managers and the different ways they play".
