GIF It: Chelsea’s Michael Ballack tries to eat referee Tom Henning Ovrebo
Michael Ballack: part past his prime midfielder, part bear. Here he is chasing referee Tom Henning Ovrebo down the touchline after his appeal for a last-gasp penalty for handball by Samuel Eto’o was turned down. He genuinely seems to be very close to mauling the guy to death.
The ref is quite content to believe that if he doesn’t look at Ballack then he can’t hurt him. But this is not true of a Ballack and it is not true of real bears!
