Rabbit killer: A slayer of the weak who can look fragile against the strong.
BBC sports used this term to describe Robinho: “His truly great performances came in the two meetings with Chile, a 3-0 win in a group game and a 6-1 rout in the quarter final. Both times Robinho was dazzling. But Chile were not only very poor defensively, they were also falling apart after internal discipline problems.”
He’s a pretty sweet player, but probably not good enough to warrant all his sulking.
