Mario Balotelli punched an Adana Demirspor teammate in frustration after being substituted early on Friday night.
The Italy international is no stranger to controversy and he now plies his trade in the Turkish Super League.
Demirspor were desperate to secure their first win of the season and with the scores still 0-0 close to the hour mark, manager Samet Aybaba decided to shake things up.
He brought off Balotelli, who is yet to score this season, and he wasn't happy at all.
Balotelli took his seat on the bench and threw his shinpads down while shouting at a teammate and coach.
He then slammed his feet to the ground before striking the player sat to his right on the arm.
The player gave Balotelli a quick glance, but he'd already calmed down by then and sat back in his chair.
Fair play for the player not causing a scene. He would've been within his right to do so.

What my man just sitting there firming a punch for no reason? :joy: Balotelli has his team mates shook. https://t.co/hPHQLv10aY- JD (@JD_R17) August 27, 2021
Demirspor did take the lead not long after Balotelli's protest thanks to a face English football fans will know.
Former Nottingham Forest and Middlesborough man Britt Assombalonga bagged to have Demirspor dreaming of a big win.
However, Abdulkerim Bardakci struck for Konyaspor to make it 1-1 which is how it ended.
Former Manchester City man Balotelli has always been a maverick and that is evident by his ridiculous fine list at the Etihad.
Micah Richards played with Balotelli and discussed just how much he was paying in penalties back in 2019.
He told Radio Five Live: "Everything else seems to be within sync. Balotelli was always late.
"We used to give all of our money to charities and by Christmas time we'd have £100,000 or £150,000 in there all from Balotelli being late.
"He would be in the building. Say we had a meeting upstairs - he'd be downstairs just relaxing.
"He'd come to the meeting but he was just a bit dozy.
