Southampton player defends Manchester City's Guardiola over pep talk

Asked if he had spoken to Redmond about the incident or reviewed it on video, Pellegrino replied: "No, no".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has this afternoon passed comment on the FA's decision not to punish Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola for his recent antics during the Citizens' clash with Southampton.

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

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

The Big City Christmas Store is Now Open! What I said is what I said and what Nathan said in his statement.

He said: "You are asking me one question, if I am surprised".

That did not happen to Manchester City counterpart Guardiola when he ran on to the pitch while celebrating the Blues' last-gasp victor in Wednesday's 2-1 home victory over the Saints.

"I told him I was doing what my manager had asked me to do in the game". I just wanted them to play'. I don't know why we make press conferences.

Guardiola was also seen having an odd exchange with Southampton winger Redmond after the full-time whistle, gesticulating at the player, but said he was telling him what a good player he was.

And he did not want to discuss the latter on Friday, saying: "Forget me against Wenger".

"Yes he was very passionate, intense and aggressive but he was only very complimentary and positive to me", Redmond said.

Guardiola said he would "never judge the way opponents play against one of my teams". Hojbjerg told Redmond such behaviour was not unusual and, if Guardiola liked a player, it did not matter whether they played for his side.

"It is the same as what I do to beat them". That's it. Nothing negative or offensive was said towards me from Pep and that's what makes him one of the best managers in world football.
