Guardiola probed by English FA over challenge with Redmond

Guardiola probed by English FA over challenge with Redmond

The Spanish coach said, "I can't control myself and I have to make an effort to improve".

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

Redmond posted the statement in response to an article published on the Sun's website, which featured a lip reader claiming Guardiola had called Redmond a "wanker" and had accused him of "taking me for a mug".

Redmond has since played down the incident, stating there was nothing aggressive or offensive in what Guardiola said to him. Everyone wants to win the game, definitely.

Despite Raheem Sterling's 96th minute victor against Southampton, most of the post-match talk has been around what was said between Guardiola and Redmond.

"It's so complicated when teams defend with 10 players", he added. They believe that is the best way. When I give you an opinion, I give you an opinion.

"I understand completely to attack with the set-pieces". However, Guardiola clarified during the press conference that they were just words. "It's the same as I do to beat them". This season, however, Citizens earned all three points thanks to a late victor from Raheem Sterling. All the managers want to help their players because if they play bad we'll be sacked.

That followed a similar, injury-time victor at Bournemouth and a point-saving late equaliser with Everton, the only team to have avoided defeat against rampant City this season.

"It's not my business", said Guardiola. All the credit goes to him.

"We tried to help him, the individual performances, it's no secret".

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.
