"We can not deny I am so satisfied with the previous results, but there are more than 70 points to play", he said.
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. That's why we've done that in the last period".
"It's so complicated when teams defend with 10 players", he added.
"I've played in my career against lots of managers and I will never judge the way opponents play against one of my teams".
Raheem Sterling scored a 96th-minute victor in the 2-1 victory over Southampton as City maintained their eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League. after also scoring a late victor at Huddersfield Town on Sunday and in the Champions League victory over Feyenoord.
That followed a similar, injury-time victor at Bournemouth and a point-saving late equaliser with Everton, the only team to have avoided defeat against rampant City this season. All the managers want to help their players because if they play bad we'll be sacked. "I ran after Raz but I'm not quick enough but we were so happy". Many in the English press have criticised Guardiola today, with some even suggesting he should face an FA charge. "The last game we didn't play David Silva from the beginning, I roatated and maybe i will again". Guardiola said after the game that he was telling Redmond "how good a player he is".
