Nathan Redmond: Pep Guardiola was complimentary during passionate, intense chat

The Spaniard has until Monday to respond to the FA.

The City boss insisted after the match he had only wanted to tell Redmond "how good a player he is", and Redmond has backed up that account following reports on Thursday which suggested Guardiola had in fact been strongly criticising the once-capped England player.

Redmond went public on the matter after an article in The Sun newspaper accused Guardiola of aiming foul and abusive language towards him and insisted the Catalan's "intense and aggressive" approach was wholly well-intentioned.

The Big City Christmas Store is Now Open! Redmond issued a statement on Twitter in response to growing media speculation, confirming "nothing negative or offensive was said".

"I said [to the referee] I apologise because i couldn't control it, I was so happy like all the fans and players".

That did not happen to Manchester City counterpart Guardiola when he ran on to the pitch while celebrating the Blues' last-gasp victor in Wednesday's 2-1 home victory over the Saints.

Guardiola admitted frustration that Southampton "didn't want to play" and "were time wasting from the ninth minute".

Speaking at a news conference to preview Sunday's Premier League game against West Ham, Guardiola was asked whether he regretted his actions and simply replied: "Yes". "I have to do that, hopefully I can improve", he added. "I didn't know him last season, I realised how good he is" was what Guardiola claimed before Redmond came to his support.

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

'I told him I was doing what my manager had asked.

"It is the same as what I do to beat them".

"I played against millions of managers in my career and the different ways they play". "But I think I was clear, we were clear, when Arsenal wanted him we said no, that's not going to happen, he's still young, we hope to make him happy and he can stay for longer. but it depends on the club and him".
