This is a great thing from comic artist David Squires, capturing the ominous nature of any Chelsea hiring. Rafa has no choice. He must answer the call. There is a car waiting for him outside, and if you don’t imagine it to contain a number of cold sweat-inducing visages of Russian origin, maybe you should read up on Roman Abramovich.
Here’s the detail I like: Rafa says “Say goodbye to the children for me,” even though the phone he answered (and yes, Rafa would definitely own a phone with a cord in 2012) is in the same room as said children. That’s how much the call has affected him. He’s barely conscious of his surroundings.
