Since Sunday evening the whole World has been debating what Italian
defender Marco Materazzi said to Zinedine Zidane to make the retiring
Frenchman react in the way he did. The French captain, in his last ever
professional game, thrust his head into Materezzi's chest in Sunday's World
Cup Final resulting in a red card and shame for Zidane. Today, with the
help of Italian lip-reader Arturo Belladini, we can reveal what drove
Zidane to self destruct;
Materazzi was seen to hold Zidane's shirt on the edge of the penalty box in
extra-time at which point Zidane said
"if you want my shirt so bad you can have it"
"I dont want your shirt you m***** f*****. you're a f****** old man"
As they jog away Zidane is seen to laugh at this and it is unclear how he
responded due to him having his back to the TV camera
Materazzi then hit a volley of abuse
"you should've quit 2 years ago, you're a f****** has-been"
"m***** f*****! your mum is a f****** muslim terrorist and you are to, f***
you old man f*** you"
"old man, this arena is not for you anymore m***** f*****"
Zidane carries on jogging away
"you are only good enough for Tottenham now" It's at this very point Zidane
turned and head-butted him.
