Nathan Redmond makes his point after Pep talk

Posted December 04, 2017

Redmond certainly didn't look as though he welcomed Guardiola's approach in the wake of Raheem Sterling's injury-time victor that secured Manchester City's narrow, 2-1 victory over Southampton although he subsequently insisted the Spaniard had offered nothing but positive words of advice.

"I explained what happened".

In a post on social media, the Southampton forward said: "When one of the world's best managers compliments you or gives advice in any way, you listen". I just wanted them to play'.

Guardiola approached Redmond on the field immediately after Premier League leaders secured a dramatic 2-1 win over Saints - Raheem Sterling's 96th-minute victor prompting wild celebration at the Etihad Stadium. I can not control myself. "The last game we didn't play David Silva from the beginning, I roatated and maybe i will again".

'Yes he was very passionate, intense and aggressive but he was only very complimentary and positive to me, ' the Saints man told his followers on Twitter. I don't know why we make press conferences. He (the referee) told me, "you can't do that" and I said "I know".

TMC chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was, however, more vocal in her criticism and claimed that a growth of 6.3 per cent was "no growth".

"What Redmond said in his statement, I admire him as a player and thank him for his comments", he added. "If people don't believe me, let's cancel our press conferences and just play the games".

"I played against millions in managers and the different ways they play. I will never judge the way my opponents want to play against my teams because I don't like the other managers judging what I want to do", he added. Never in my career, on or off the pitch, was I disrespectful about what they believe they have to do to beat me. But they didn't want to play, they were time wasting from the ninth minute.

"I've faced this kind of team a lot in my career and I have to think how to beat them". I said to Nathan you have to attack because you have the quality to do that.

The Spaniard said after the game that he was telling 23-year-old "how good a player he is" and how he was unhappy that he didn't openly attack City and instead played for the draw. It's really frustrating for us but I am happy for them.
