..with that Italian team being so whiny and diving all over the place, no wonder he was getting frustrated.

The Italians weren't diving. The penalty call for MAluda was more of a dive than anything else.

'Zidane was goaded by racist slur'
10th July 2006



Image
Final duties: The Algerian Zinedine Zidane arrives at the Elysee Palace in Paris today to meet French President Jacques Chirac. Like a lot of the "France" team - probably the majority of it - he isn't French.




Zinedine Zidane, who was sent off for headbutting Italian defender Marco Materazzi in the chest during the World Cup final, was responding to being called 'a terrorist', according to reports today.

Zidane's headbutt was "provoked" by a comment from the Italy defender, according to the player's agent.

And, while Alain Migliaccio did not know what Materazzi said, he confirmed that Zidane would reveal all soon.

The France captain was sent off in the World Cup final - his last game before retirement - after driving his shaven head into the chest of Materazzi in the first period of extra time.

The Italians went on to win a penalty shootout after extra time had ended with the score level at 1-1 while the best player of his generation lurked somewhere in the bowels of Berlin's Olympic Stadium.

But Zidane's agent, Migliaccio, claims Materazzi insulted the French-born son of Algerian immigrants.

"He was very sad for everything that happened but this is life," Migliaccio told Radio Five Live.

"He is a human being not a god. I know Zizou (Zidane) well and even though he hasn't told me exactly what Materazzi said, I know that he was provoked.

"Materazzi said something very grave to him, I don't know what it was. I know Zizou well and he will not reveal what Materazzi said to him but he will in one or two days' time explain why he had such a reaction.

"When he is calmer he will speak. When I saw him at 2am he was very sad, he didn't want to end his career like this. He was simply very sad.

"He is a person that doesn't say much but bottles it up and then one day explodes."

Others had earlier claimed he was riled by goading by Materazzi, who was clearly seen twisting the Frenchman's nipple in the run-up to the incident.

While Materazzi refused to comment after the match there has been speculation in French newspaper L'Equipe that he called the French-Algerian Zidane "a terrorist."

Zidane's furious French team-mate William Gallas raged at Materazzi's provocation. "When I see this, I want to smash his face. Sometimes you have players who are clever and say something to you and you are very angry and want to kill that player."

I am ashamed of Zizou, says Leboeuf

Lashing out: Zidane's headbutt powers into the chest of Materazzi


However, Zidane's fellow former World Cup winner Frank Leboeuf is at a loss to explain what made the France captain commit his shameful headbutt.

Leboeuf, part of the team alongside Zidane which won the World Cup on home soil in 1998, can still scarcely believe what he saw from his old colleague in Berlin.

"I cannot accept what he did," the ex-Chelsea defender told BBC Radio 5 Live.

"I think Materazzi said something very bad to him for him to react like that.

"But it doesn't matter what he said - you cannot agree with what he did. I feel very ashamed - because it is not the kind of thing that this team does."

Zidane will never have the chance to redeem himself, because the final against Italy was his last match before retirement - and that makes the incident even more regrettable for Leboeuf.

"He has been such a great footballer and a wonderful human being... I don't understand what happened," he added.

"He has a hot temper; he can react, as we have seen two or three times in his career.

"He is a very shy person, a quiet guy - not the kind of guy to show the image he did.

"He should have been focused on the real target - the World Cup. To go out like that, end his great career like that, is a pity."

Zidane given best player award


After his moment of madness, Zidane may have been the surprise winner of the Goldenball award but the voting for the award was carried at half-time in the final.

Zidane, 34, topped a poll of journalists covering the event ahead with 2,012 points ahead of Italian pair Fabio Cannavaro (1,977) and Andrea Pirlo (715).

Zidane was disappointing in France's opening games and was suspended for their crucial final group match against Togo.

He returned to give match-winning performances against Spain, Brazil and Portugal and had hoped for a glorious career finale in Berlin.

That was on course to happen as he netted the penalty that gave France the lead but Italy responded to take the match to extra time.

Zidane had a great chance to win the game when he forced a fine save from Gianluigi Buffon with a header but the last memory of him on a field was him charging at Materazzi and headbutting him in his chest over a comment made by the defender.

You know what, I don't look at him any less for what he did. The pizzeria meesed up his order on the biggest day of his life. I'd be pissed too. Lip readers are saying that the Ita;ian mouthed something about his Muslim heritage and how it relates to terrorism. If it were me, I would have kicked him so hard in the nutts he would never want to eat another meatball as long as he lived.

He's MVP of the final and his country forgave him before he even got off of the plane. As far as I'm concerned, this story is over. Let the guy retire in peace.

Hmpf...

The Italians played a little unfair, I'd say.
A German sport journalist said during this World Cup "Italy plays unpleasant football" I think that's right, eh?

So if you've watched the game, you may have noticed that the audience hooted the Italien team, because the didn't play fair.
And I think that this Italian player must have provoked Zidane... could have been something very personal or racist...

And I also think that the referee was biased (pro Italy) in the majority of his decisions...

If that's the case then he wouldn't have called that penalty for the French in the 5th minute.

I would like to know what he said to set him off.

Maybe something like this:

Hey stinky after the game you wana go for a nice Prosciutto & Arugula Sandwich?


and if you'd have been in Materazzi's place I'd love to see you go down like a sack of sh*t the way he did

It makes me wonder how 'professional" Zidane is when he pulls a complete bone-head move in extra time of the biggest game of his career! 8O

He could have been a hero for France but instead looks like a selfish little brat with his actions.

Vive Italia! (That's for my wife!) :lol: Personally I didn't give a rats ass who won!


Soccer players are all selfish little brats.

The diving and acting is such a terrible example for kids it's a joke and then to award that idiot with the MVP....what a good example for children! Act like a baby, head-butt a guy, lose the World Cup and get the MVP.


What a classless tournament.

Zidane is a jackass

I would have punched him if I was playing for France!!!

What a selfish bastard!!!

Props to the italian player who made him go crazy!!!

I did the same thing many times while I was playing hockey....
You spot those impulsives who go nuts if you talk bout their mom of something like that, you start trash talking to him, he hits you in the head with his stick, he's suspended 10 games....

Sorry to all Zidane groupies who think it's a shame to use such techniques but this is a COMPETITIVE sport where the goal IS NOT TO PARTICIPATE BUT TO WIN.

Once again to refer with hockey, if it's acceptable a a Midget BB hockey league to use trash talk, it certainly is in this kind of event.

What I say i " If you can't beat a guy, make him beat himself "

Hahaha, I'm sure he's laughing just like I am. But then again he has the cup and Zidane is holding his dick.

As shitty a move as it was, it provided some much needed DRAMA to the game. Here it is a couple of days later and we are still talking about it.

People will be talking about it for years. Just like Geoff Hurst's goal in the '66 final and Maradonna' Hand of God goal in '86.

Right now I'm waiting for GreatBriton to post some Gallophobic article from one of the many tabloid rags in England.

He already did. Look farther up on page two. I think that's the guy's schtick, posting articles. Perhaps a modern method of imperialism from the old empire :)
