On-loan Imbula infuriated TFC fans with his reaction to be substituted in the 0-0 draw with Metz.
The midfielder stormed off and went straight to the dressing room when taken off by coach Pascal Dupraz. His behaviour angered TFC fans, with one supporters' group accusing him of 'throwing up in our face'.
Imbula took to Instagram today to try and explain himself.
"Very disappointed with the result, and regarding my exit, I was simply disappointed with my performance. It was by no means a lack of respect for the club, the staff, the players and the fans who have welcomed me very well since my arrival," he stated.
