Nobody Can Believe What Bristol City's Aden Flint Said To Pep Guardiola Last Night
You bump into one of the greatest managers of a generation and you've only got one chance to make an impression. What do you say to Pep Guardiola?
During last night's Carabao Cup semi-final second leg, Bristol City defender Aden Flint decided to ask a question, but this wasn't just any question.
Flint used his few seconds of face time with Guardiola to enquire as to why the two time Champions League winning coach had removed the Stone Island badge off the sleeve of his bomber jacket.
That's right. The Bristol City man shaked Pep's hand at full-time and enquired about the lack of a Stone Island badge on his jacket.
Aden Flint is the hero we all deserve.
After the game, Flint spoke of his pride after Bristol City managed to reach the semi-final. The Championship side did themselves proud throughout, scoring twice against the Premier League leaders on Tuesday night.

As well as their fine efforts against Guardiola's City side, Lee Johnson's side were absolutely brilliant against Jose Mourinho's Manchester United in the quarter final, just before Christmas.
They received their just rewards when Korey Smith popped up in the last minute and finished coolly past Sergio Romero make the score 2-1 and the GIF to celebrate was sensational, of course.

The last minute finish sparked incredible celebrations at Ashton Gate and the scenes continued at the final whistle when the home fans invaded the pitch at Ashton Gate.
You've got to applaud The Robin's incredible run in this year's Carabao Cup. And obviously applaud Flint's menswear related grilling of Pep Guardiola.
Do you think Lee Johnson's side will be playing Premier League football next season?
