Coach Fabrizio Ravanelli substituted Ajaccio's Gadji Tallo only for the striker to react and throw a tantrum.
The incident was spotted in last weekend's Ligue 1 action in France as Ajaccio lost 2-1 at Guingamp.
With Ajaccio leading 1-0, coach Fabrizio Ravanelli felt compelled to sub striker Tallo after the Ivorian striker called for a stretcher as he was apparently injured.
Fearing the worst, Ravanelli instantly subbed his attacker.
Realising that he'd just been withdrawn from the match, Tallo managed an instant and miraculous recovery as the forward leapt out of the stretcher in order to throw a fit on the sidelines.
