Southampton player defends Manchester City's Guardiola over pep talk

Man City vs West Ham

Guardiola wary of bans before derby

The English Football Association has asked the City boss to explain his version of events following an aggressive-looking discussion with the Saints player after the final whistle at the Etihad Stadium.

Explaining his comments to Redmond, he added: "I said what good a player he is".

Guardiola approached Redmond moments after Raheem Sterling had scored a 96th-minute victor for the league leaders at Etihad Stadium. "I did it in [Bayern] Munich, with my old player Kimmich, I did the same".

However, whether true or not, Fisher did make FSU football elite again after mediocrity during the late years of Bobby Bowden . In eight seasons, Fisher lead the Seminoles to an 83-23 record, winning a BCS National Championship in 2013 .

The Spaniard did have qualms with the Southampton playing style, according to Redmond, and perhaps the reason he appeared to be so agitated was that the visitors' tactics did not allow for the full array of talent in their side to be expressed, while simultaneously frustrating Guardiola and his team. I didn't know him last season, I realised how good he is.

Redmond took to Twitter on Thursday night to brush off the conversation as "positive and complimentary" although Guardiola admitted on Friday he regrets his actions. "I admire him as a football player and I say thank you for his comments".

"When I give you an opinion, I give you an opinion", former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager Guardiola told reporters. That led to suggestions that Guardiola might have been undermining Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino but the City boss has denied this.

Guardiola said he would "never judge the way opponents play against one of my teams".

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

'You know, if you are my friends, don't ask me the question, because you know I get into trouble, so no'.
