SAO PAULO (AP) - A player from Brazilian top-flight club Internacional confronted his own team’s fans during the middle of a match after being upset by their jeering.

Angry with the constant derision, left back Fabricio gave the ball away to a teammate and then walked toward the fans midway through the second half of Internacional’s match against Ypiranga in a regional tournament Wednesday.

He made several obscene gestures to fans, prompting the referee to immediately send him off. The crowd loudly chanted when the red card was shown.

Fabricio then took off his jersey and threw it to the ground as several teammates came over to try to calm him down.

As he left the field, Fabricio could be seen telling fans he will never play for the team again.
