Bristol City defender Aden Flint has taken to social media to reveal the truth behind his on-pitch conversation with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

The Championship club gave Man City a scare in the Carabao Cup semi-final but were beaten 5-3 on aggregate after losing 3-2 at Ashton Gate on Tuesday night.

Guardiola side's went 2-0 up through Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero but Bristol City battled hard and fought back to make it 2-2.

A 96th minute Kevin De Bruyne goal wrapped up a spot in the final for the Premier League leaders - but the former Barcelona and Bayern coach hopes his players learnt an important lesson.

"We lost control," said Guardiola. "We played amazing in the first half and in the second half until we led 2-0.

"But after we lost control, maybe it will be good for us, for the Champions League against Basel, to learn that you have to play for 90 minutes and anything can happen."

Man City are considered overwhelming favourites for their Champions League last 16 tie against Basel in February.


Flint moment with Guardiola at full-time

Fans spotted a funny exchange between Guardiola and Bristol City's 28-year-old defender at the full-time whistle.

There was an assumption made that Flint, who had scored in the 94th minute, asked the 47-year-old Spaniard why the Stone Island badge had been cut off his sleeve.

However, Flint tweeted what he had actually asked Guardiola.

"Asked pep to swap his stone island jacket for my shirt.. he declined. 😔☹️😂"

It's just as funny, to be honest.

Man City face Cardiff City in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday afternoon and will face wither Chelsea or Arsenal in the final of the Carabao Cup.

"We won a lot of games over six or seven months," said Guardiola. "That belongs to us and nobody can take away what we have done, but all teams are judged by the titles they win.


"Chelsea and Arsenal are strong teams. Anything can happen."

Guardiola - who is yet to win a trophy since taking charge at the Etihad - is gunning for a historic quadruple and the Carabao Cup final on February 25 will be a great opportunity to get his first piece of English silverware.
