"I didn't see anything, because after the finish I went to the dressing room as quickly as possible", said Pellegrino, of Guardiola's full-time flashpoint with Redmond.

Speaking at a news conference to preview Sunday's Premier League game against West Ham, Guardiola was asked whether he regretted his actions and simply replied: "Yes". I said what I said and what Nathan said in his statement. Hopefully I will improve. "Last season he destroyed us here and I didn't know him".

"When I give you an opinion, I give you an opinion".

"That is not your job it's his manager and what you want them to do just let them open up so you can score a lot?"

The Spaniard did have qualms with the Southampton playing style, according to Redmond, and perhaps the reason he appeared to be so agitated was that the visitors' tactics did not allow for the full array of talent in their side to be expressed, while simultaneously frustrating Guardiola and his team.

Guardiola insisted that his aggression was as a result of Southampton's time-wasting.

'He commented on my qualities as a young English player and how he wanted me to attack his team more during the game in a similar way to last season.

'I told him I was doing what my manager had asked. "It's the same as I do to beat them".

It followed an 84th minute victor at Huddersfield on Sunday and an 88th minute victor in the Champions League against Feyenoord.

Redmond explained that "nothing negative or offensive was said towards me" and concluded: "Sadly this story is an example of lazy journalism and is a complete joke". Sterling also struck twice in added time in August, hitting a victor at Bournemouth and an equaliser against Everton in the only match this season rampant City have not won.

"I played against millions of managers in my career and the different ways they play".

"We tried to help him, the individual performances, it's no secret".
