Southampton player defends Manchester City's Guardiola over pep talk

Southampton player Nathan Redmond has jumped to the defence of Pep Guardiola after the Manchester City boss had some animated words with the Saints star after Wednesday night's game at the Etihad.

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

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has been given until Monday to respond to the FA.

"I have been in that position myself - [Manchester] United used to do it to everybody else to be honest!" the City captain told reporters. If people don't believe me, we should cancel our press conference.

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

Guardiola was also seen having an odd exchange with Southampton winger Redmond after the full-time whistle, gesticulating at the player, but said he was telling him what a good player he was.

His last-gasp victor against Southampton in midweek was his 13th of the campaign, beating last season's total already. I just wanted them to play'. But the key thing for us is not necessarily what the other teams think but just to know that you can trust your team, your players. Last season he destroyed us here. "I do think that it is a big, big difference [scoring earlier] in a game", the Belgian global said.

"I wouldn't bank on it happening every week so the sooner we start scoring earlier the better". "All the managers want to help their players because if they play good, we survive, if they play bad, we are sacked".

Guardiola, 46, has earned a reputation for talking up opponents, regardless of how modest they appear on paper.

"Losing the game the way we did in the last kick of the game after working so hard for 90-plus minutes, I was very disappointed". He is a player I would like to keep at the club.
