"Yes [I regret it]", Guardiola said.
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.
The English Football Association has asked the City boss to explain his version of events following an aggressive-looking discussion with the Saints player after the final whistle at the Etihad Stadium.

"I want to make it absolutely clear Pep Guardiola did not say what the Sun is falsely claiming in this story", Redmond said.
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.
"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".More news: Uttar Pradesh tops Crime List, Delhi Least Safe among Metros: NCRB
Speaking after the match, Guardiola had admitted his frustration that Southampton "didn't want to play" and "were time wasting from the ninth minute", but insisted he was praising Redmond despite his rather aggressive-looking manner. I didn't know him last season, I realised how good he is.
"When I give you an opinion, I give you an opinion", former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager Guardiola told reporters.
"You know, if you are my friends, don't ask me the question, because you know I get into trouble, so no".
"I never judge and never will judge the way my opponents play against my team", Guardiola said. Guardiola said: "I have played against millions of managers and the different ways they play".
"It is the same as what I do to beat them".
'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'.
