With Dani Alves losing his temper after being substituted in Barcelona’s Champions League win against Manchester City during the week, the Fan Park crew has decided to take a look at some of the most memorable reactions by players after being substituted - whether it’s in the heat of the moment, or something more personal.
We know that he can sometimes be a big baby, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to see him flipping his top – but in this case, he did exactly that! It was his last season at Manchester United when he threw his tracksuit top after Fergie removed him from the field against rivals Manchester City.
In 2011 during his time at Manchester City, the Italian Striker lost the plot after being subbed when he had just been brought on! He was on the field for no more than 20 minutes when Mancini took him off again, after the forward missed a clear chance.

The left-winger said some things he might have regretted the next day, after he was taken off against Athletic Bilbao when he was playing for Atletico Madrid. The frustrated player was heard saying: "Go change your ******* mother." He might have gone and cried to his own after not being selected for the next few weeks.
When he was at Fiorentina, the Serbian lost his cool after his coach Delio Rossi took him off the field. He was seen spitting at his coach and he was heard saying: “You're a bigger ret**** than your son!” This reaction proved costly as he sat out for the next three months.
The legendary striker wasn’t happy at being taken off and Real Madrid’s assistant manager at the time, Garcia Remon, shouted “Who do you think you are, you spoilt brat!”
