Nathan Redmond makes his point after Pep talk

Tim Sherwood suggests what Southampton star Nathan Redmond really meant with response to Man City boss Pep Guardiola Manchester City's Pep Guardiola regrets fiery post-match exchange with Southampton's Nathan Redmond

Pep Guardiola has admitted that his animated discussion with Nathan Redmond on Wednesday was similar to outbursts he had in Germany.

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

The former Barcelona manager was forced to answer to the FA, who wanted to know what the meeting between the two men consisted of. I admire Redmond as a play and I thank him for his comments. If people don't believe me, we should cancel our press conference.

A new contract was likely at the end of the current campaign but City will accelerate talks as Sterling has made incredible progress under Guardiola. "That's why we've done that in the last period". "But they didn't want to play, they were time-wasting from the ninth minute".

'I told him that he will play because I feel he's ready to do it, prepared to do it; well prepared to do it'. I never judge and never will judge the way my opponents play against my team.

The away side had it in control just like last season, where they held Guardiola's side to a draw. Today, he could not attack because they defended all the time.

Guardiola faces a tough selection issue for Sunday's visit of struggling with West Ham - with Vincent Kompany, Leroy Sane and Fernandinho all one booking away from a suspension that would rule them out of the Manchester derby a week later. "I ran after Raz but I'm not quick enough but we were so happy". "I said to Nathan you are a good player and you have to attack".

"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".

However, after the final whistle, as the celebrations had died down and his own players and players from Southampton made their way off the Etihad Stadium pitch to return to the dressing rooms, it was clear that Guardiola's adrenaline rush had not left him.
