The Nigeria international has received criticism for poor performances throughout the season, but appeared to finally snap in the match against Fener’s Instanbul rivals.
Watch the incident in the video below:
While we’ve yet to come across an example of a footballer taking the initiative himself, it’s not the first time a player has been removed from the pitch for his own good.
Galatasaray right back Emmanuel Eboue was famously taken off for his own good by Arsene Wenger in 2008 while playing for Arsenal against Wigan Athletic. The Ivorian made a series of dreadful errors after coming off the bench, and upon being booed by his own fans, found himself in the humiliating position of being a substituted substitute – leaving Wenger with little option but to show mercy.
Eboue salvaged his Gunners career, playing for the north London outfit for a further two seasons, but it remains to be seen what will happen with Emenike.
