Gonzalo Higuain had to be restrained by his Napoli team-mates and pulled away from the referee after seeing red against Udinese this afternoon.
The Argentine striker even pushed the referee following his dismissal for lashing out late in the match.
Ironically, the afternoon had started in a bright manner for Higuain, who scored in the first-half to notch his 30th Serie A goal of the season.
That was not only significant because it looked like keeping Napoli in the race to claim the Italian top-flight title for the first time since the 1980s, but it also broke Edinson Cavani’s club record of 29 league goals for a domestic season.
But Higuain quickly turned from hero to villain, striking Udinese defender X with just 15 minutes remaining, and his team trailing 3-1.
He was shown his second yellow, and obviously a red card- and he didn’t like it one little bit:

Probably for his own benefit, he was eventually restrained and taken away from the situation before things really got out of hand.
