Watch: Gonzalo Higuaín Absolutely Lost His Shit After Being Sent Off For Title-Chasing Napoli

Gonzalo Higuaín's incredible form for title chasers Napoli continued as he netted his 30th league goal for the Ciucciarelli, but his side lost ground on Juventus with a 3-1 defeat at Udinese.

And the Argentine striker lost his shit, while they were at it.

The former Real Madrid man appeared to push the referee in the chest after being sent off whilst Napoli chased the game, and had to be restrained by teammates as he prolonged his tearful walk to the tunnel with one of the most gesticaltive outbursts you'll ever see on a football pitch.

It's not difficult to understand why the perennial Arsenal target is so frustrated; Napoli are having their 'Liverpool 2013/14' season - it seemed destiny was on their side when they led the league approaching Italy's winter break. But Juventus' phenomenal form has seen them capitalise on a couple of Napolese blips, and the champions now have a six point lead at the top of the Serie A table.

Add to that Higuaín's phenomenal personal form and the fact that he's almost certain to depart Napoli this summer, and you're reminded of Luis Suarez tearful collapse at Selhurst Park this time two years ago.
