PEP GUARDIOLA has been branded a "sausage" by fans for his reaction to Manchester City's Carabao Cup exit.
The Treble winners were knocked out in the third round by Newcastle on Wednesday night.
Alexander Isak's second half strike proved to be the only goal of the game as Eddie Howe's side progressed to the last 16.
After the match, Guardiola fumed at Newcastle's approach to the game, despite initially congratulating them on their victory.
The City boss ranted: "I think Newcastle couldn’t accept our first half dominance.
"They increased the rhythm and aggression and kicking, and they were there, more aggressive. We struggled a little but that’s normal.

"I said at half-time the second half will not be like the first.
"I don’t know how many fouls they did and how many we did but we had double yellow cards. It is what it is."
Guardiola had earlier been shown a yellow card for dissent during the match before confronting referee Chris Kavanagh at the final whistle.
Reacting to the Spaniard's rant on social media, one fan wrote: "Pep Guardiola the biggest sore loser in world football, sausage."
