FA probe Guardiola's outburst at Redmond

FA probe Guardiola's outburst at Redmond

When Raheem Sterling netted a stunning 95th-minute victor to secure a 2-1 victory for Manchester City against Southampton on Wednesday night, Pep Guardiola could be forgiven for his wild and theatrical celebrations from the dugout. Now I can not talk about our players.

Premier League leaders City beat the Saints 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium thanks to Raheem Sterling's superb stoppage-time victor.

Guardiola has since admitted he harboured regrets over the incident, with the Football Association asking for his observations on the issue. "I did it in [Bayern] Munich, with my old player Kimmich, I did the same".

"I did the same in Dortmund and had regret there after the game and the same now".

"What Redmond said in his statement, I admire him as a player and thank him for his comments", he added. "(I told him) how good a player he is", Guardiola said.

Alianza Lima es campeón nacional y estos son los divertidos memes
Sin necesidad de jugar un play off, Alianza Lima , que campeonó el Apertura, depende de sí misma para hacerse del título nacional. La última vez que el equipo dió una vuelta olímpica para festejar fue en 2006.

Pep Guardiola also went further to explain his chat with Nathan Redmond afterward. If people don't believe me, we should cancel our press conference.

Guardiola said he would "never judge the way opponents play against one of my teams". All the managers want to help their players because if they play bad we'll be sacked.

"I think it was a fair result, it was a really tight game, both teams wanted to win the game". "Last season he destroyed us here and I didn't know him". Never in my career, on or off the pitch, was I disrespectful about what they believe they have to do to beat me.

City host West Ham at 16:00 GMT on Sunday, while Southampton travel to south-coast rivals Bournemouth at 13:30 on the same day.

'For sure it's something we were talking about, in the last few weeks, that we can work in the way we attack and he and others can be more aggressive in the final third, ' said Pellegrino. Many in the English press have criticised Guardiola today, with some even suggesting he should face an FA charge.
