Nathan Redmond Clears Up What Pep Guardiola Said To Him

Nathan Redmond Clears Up What Pep Guardiola Said To Him

"I said to Nathan: 'You are a good player and you have to attack'".

"I think it's maybe an inner hunger [from Sterling], maybe that desire to be amongst the best".

I want to make it absolutely clear that the Man City manager, Pep Guardiola, did not say what The Sun is falsely claiming in this story.

"I don't know what happened".

"We now have the feeling - wherever we go, whoever we play - that we are capable of winning". I admire Redmond as a play and I thank him for his comments.

"Confidence - you can't just say it, "oh, now you have to be confident". Never in my career, on or off the pitch, was I disrespectful about what they believe they have to do to beat me.

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.

Judge Agius declared the courtroom to be a crime scene as he restarted the hearing, though gave no further details. Wednesday's hearing was the final case at the groundbreaking tribunal before it closes its doors next month.

Sterling improved steadily under Guardiola last season but his development appears to have accelerated again this term.

"It's not my business", said Guardiola.

Sterling has been one of City's outstanding performers this campaign with his 13 goals coming from just 14 starts. "Nothing negative or offensive was said towards me from Pep and that's what makes him one of the best managers in world football". "Today he could not attack because he defends all the time". But all the credit is Raheem's.

"We believe in him. I ran after Raz but I'm not quick enough but we were so happy".

Guardiola faces a tough selection issue for Sunday's visit of struggling with West Ham - with Vincent Kompany, Leroy Sane and Fernandinho all one booking away from a suspension that would rule them out of the Manchester derby a week later.

And nine points from those games will be a must, if they are to remain in the title race.
