VIDEO: Internacional player flips off his own fans, gets sent off

Vitoria v Internacional - Brasileirao Series A 2014

This is a really strange one. (Not AC Milan + Hello Kitty-strange, but certainly something you don’t see everyday.)

Internacional defender Fabricio was sent off for flashing his own fans, who were giving him plenty of stick all game long, the double-bird in a Brazilian league game against Ypiranga RS. Not only does he flip the fans the double-bird, but he walks toward them in the middle of open play to do so.

After nearly a full minute of teammates trying to console and calm him, Fabricio finally wrestles himself free and throws his Internacional jersey to the ground.

Steven Gerrard has nothing on Fabricio for his ridiculous sending off against Manchester United. I was, obviously, never a professional footballer, but one would imagine there’s no going back from this kind of display.
