Guardiola's Man City believe they can beat anybody, any time, any place


Guardiola was seen yelling at Redmond just moments after Raheem Sterling last-gasp victor and some reports claimed the Spaniard had called the forward a "w****r".

Asked if he had spoken to Redmond about the incident or reviewed it on video, Pellegrino replied: "No, no". I admire Redmond as a play and I thank him for his comments.

Redmond said: "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". Ahead of City's clash with West Ham tomorrow, the manager added: "I didn't discover Raheem".

"I was telling Nathan Redmond how good he is at the end".

"If the FA want my statement again, I am able to explain whatever they want".

"Losing the game the way we did in the last kick of the game after working so hard for 90 minutes was very disappointment [sic] but when one of the worlds [sic] best managers compliments you or gives advice in any way, you listen".

"Winning against Liverpool at home, winning at Stamford Bridge (Chelsea), winning against Napoli, against Shakhtar at home, they're both complicated teams", he said. "If people don't believe me, we should cancel the press conference". I just wanted them to play'. "It's not a problem". "I was asked many times about that when we have good results".

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.

Under Guardiola, City will be looking to challenge on all fronts and the former Barcelona boss is expecting his team to continue their recent run. Guardiola said: "I have played against millions of managers and the different ways they play". Never in my career, on or off the pitch, was I disrespectful about what they believe they have to do to beat me.
