Footballers’ tantrums more or less in the style of Spartacus – or maybe not.

Spartacus by Denis Foyatier (1793-1863) – Louvre, Paris.

“Spartacus, a Thracian prince, made Roman slave, was condemned to the lowly status of gladiator. Having escaped from prison, he raised an army of malcontents, and struck terror right into heart of Rome. He is represented at the moment when he has just broken his chains.”

Nicolas Anelka (2010)

“Nicolas Anelka, French soccer prince was condemned to the lowly status of international football star. Having escaped from prison, he raised an army of malcontents, and struck terror right into heart of France. He is represented at the moment when he has just broken his chains.”

John Terry (2010)

“John Terry, English soccer prince was condemned to the lowly status of international football star. Having escaped from prison, stolen his fellow’s slave’s wife, he tried to raise an army of malcontents, and struck terror right into heart of, er……. He is represented at the moment when he tried to break his chains but got told off for being silly.”
