Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been asked for his observations by the Football Association following his animated discussion with Southampton midfielder Nathan Redmond after Wednesday's Premier League game.

Guardiola approached Redmond moments after Raheem Sterling had scored a 96th-minute victor for the league leaders at Etihad Stadium.

"What Redmond said in his statement, I admire him as a player and thank him for his comments", he added.

Taking to Twitter, Redmond wrote: "Yes he was very passionate, intense and aggressive but he was only very complimentary and positive to me".

Speaking at a news conference to preview Monday's (AEDT) Premier League game against West Ham United, Guardiola was asked whether he regretted his actions and simply replied: "Yes". That's it. Nothing more, nothing less.

'Nothing negative or offensive was said towards me from Pep and that's what makes him one of the best Manager's in world football'.

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

Guardiola's behaviour appeared to be aggressive but he claimed afterwards he was merely praising Redmond's attacking qualities, something the once-capped England worldwide corroborated in a statement issued on Friday (AEDT) to refute allegations made by The Sun newspaper that the City boss directed foul and abusive language towards him.

"If the FA want my statement again, I am able to explain whatever they want". "Last season he destroyed us here and I didn't know him".

Guardiola apologised to referee Paul Tierney for his manic goal celebration when scored another sensational late victor to keep City eight points clear at the top of the.

Last seasons, Guardiola's Manchester City side drew at the hands of Redmond and co, where the winger outshone the entire team in October 2016.

"I played against millions in managers and the different ways they play". But they didn't want to play, they were time wasting from the ninth minute. They are the team who have created one of the most chances until now.
