    stare down

    Hi,

    Rigarding to the sentence below, what does mean "stare down"?

    No imported player in those years attracted more attention than Carlos Tévez, who was at the heart of a major controversy over the relegation of Sheffield United from the Premier League and was to end up in opposition to us at Manchester City, staring down from that provocative billboard in his sky-blue shirt, underneath the message: ‘Welcome to Manchester.’

    Thanks

    Re: stare down

    It's literal. His image was on a billboard and he was "staring down" at the people who looked up at the billboard.
