Palmeiras have dropped to ninth in the Brasileiro table with just one win in their last nine matches. This has not pleased their fans. So, a group of them decided to attack a player in his first year with the club as a twisted way of expressing that displeasure. And it was caught on video.

That's Joao Vitor in the tattered yellow shirt in the video above, being defended by his friend with a traffic cone and probably regretting his move to Palmeiras from Gremio.

What makes all of this even worse is that Vitor isn't even playing a regular role in Palmeiras' misfortune. Plus, he was already scheduled to miss Wednesday's match against Flamengo with an injury. Anyway, he really should get a security guard who carries more than an orange cone.

Brazilian police said fans of one of the team's organized fan groups punched and kicked reserve midfielder Joao Vitor after he was recognized arriving at the team's official store outside the Palestra Italia stadium on Tuesday.

Joao Vitor sustained minor injuries and had to visit hospital briefly.

Palmeiras lawyer Andre Sica told local television the fans confronted Joao Vitor over the team's recent results and the verbal altercation escalated into a physical confrontation. The 22-year-old player was with friends, who also got involved in the fight before police intervened with no arrests made.
