He added: "I told him I was doing what my manager had asked me to do in the game". Never in my career, on or off the pitch, was I disrespectful about what they believe they have to do to beat me.

However, Redmond took to social media on Thursday to explain how the City boss was "complimentary" to his qualities, insisting nothing "negative or offensive" was said.

"I told Redmond that he is a good player; last season he destroyed us with his style, but this time he could not attack us because his team was always in a defensive position, they wasted a lot of time during the game", Guardiola explained at the press conference.

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.

Well, despite the fact that the FA deemed the incident deserving of an explanation, it has been revealed by Redmond himself that there was, in fact, no malice in the conversation between him and Pep.

The Spaniard added: "I can not control myself". What I said is what I said and what Nathan said in his statement.

That led to suggestions that Guardiola might have been undermining Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino but the City boss has denied this.

"I was telling Nathan Redmond how good he is at the end".

"I played against millions in managers and the different ways they play", he said. We didn't win clearly because it's so complicated when 10 players defend in the box.

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

City extended their lead at the top of the table to eight points over bitter rivals Manchester United thanks to Sterling's goal which sparked huge jubilation amongst the fans.
