Who knew that cartoonists look to football for inspiration? Yeah neither did we until we did some digging... these cartoon football look-alikes cannot just be a coincidence! Here are the cartoon characters that were quite clearly (but not really) modelled on footballers and football managers.
Now we've never heard Julio Cesar speak so we can only assume he talks like Buzz, and quite frankly we want to continue to believe that.
The happy-go-lucky manager and the happy-go-lucky cartoon...
Not only does Schurrle look like Dash in his early 20's... he even has his trait, pace.
One uses his powers to keep the likes of Suarez at bay, while the other used his powers to become a supervillain... but which is which?
TEENAGE MUTANT OXLADE CHAMBERLAIN
Yes, it's not a cartoon... but it's too good to leave out!
The fierce task master looks just like a fear stricken hamster. Ironic.
The other happy-go-lucky manager with another happy-go-lucky cartoon.
It's probably not fair to call this a look alike when it's quite clearly Rafa just finding his new career path as a toy store owner.
If Welbeck is Gerald then who is Arnold?
BERGKAMP AND BUTTHEAD
Apart from the way they look I have no idea how to compare these two. Sorry.
I'm not sure if it is just the hand in this photo that does it for me... but I can no longer tell these apart.
Yet another happy-go-lucky manager, with yet another happy-go-lucky cartoon character.
