Cape Town - Twitter has reacted to the bizarre scenes of Orlando Pirates striker Thamsanqa Gabuza's incredible on-field meltdown.
In one of the most bizarre scenes to happen on a soccer pitch Orlando Pirates striker Gabuza threw his jersey at his own booing fans before storming off the pitch.
Gabuza in celebration to Pirates' opener angrily flung his shirt into the crowd then motioned to fans copying their calls for a substitution before walking down the tunnel.
The Bafana Bafana international's actions could possibly have been the first time ever a player has stormed of a pitch at the actions of his own fans.
Twitter immediately lit up with Gabuza soon being the number one trending topic on the social media platform.

Really feel for Gabuza.Week in week out gives a 100% for the club & team mates.He is going through a hard time as a player,we should get behind him and lift his spirts again.Missed chances or not, he is a human being & a good footballer who doesn’t deserve to be treated this way.— James keene (@JamesKeene28) August 28, 2018
