I think Zidane knocked the Italian guy because he doesn't like to heard something bad about his mother...

I wonder what the Italian guy said. IMO the red card for Zidane was justified tho no matter what he said...

Different angle of Zidane's head butt:

+ Show video



Some people on Digg say French TV says Zidane was "nipple-twisted" and then the guy insulted his mother with "puta madre."

Zidane was grabbed in some way butI doubt he was nipple-twisted
were the comment by a French? :-)
Anyway,it seems he likes to give hits with the head, maybe he thought he was a bull in San Fermin and the football field was the "encierro"

Bull, or goat attack...

Zidane apologises for headbutt

TURIN, Italy, Oct 26 (Reuters) – Juventus and France midfielder Zinedine Zidane has apologised for his sending off in Tuesday's Champions League defeat to Hamburg.

'I am very unhappy about what happened, and I know full well that behaving like that put my team mates in a difficult position.

'The pressure on the pitch led me to react in an instinctive manner that was produced by the tension of the moment. This is why I feel the need to apologise,' the player said in a statement on Juve's official website.

I wonder if Zidane will be on the Champs Elysées this afternoon with the rest of the French team...

I can't believe Zidane finishing his career on red card, what are the french people thinking about all this, ...TOM ?

It is a sad farewell to one of the greatest players ever to grace a football field, but he will be remembered for many years to come...

TOMHTML [PersonRank 10]

All newspapers, TV (...) are talking about that.
In fact nobody hate Zidane for what he did. Just two questions :
- Why this headbutt?
- Did the 4th referee use the video? Because it's forbidden...

"Did the 4th referee use the video? Because it's forbidden..."

What do you mean ?? its forbidden ?? what Zidane did was visable to 1.2 Billion folks worldwide.. he deserved a red card ..he is supposed to be a professional player and he is team captain . He should set an example for other teams .and aspiring next Gen players!

TOMHTML [PersonRank 10]

Of course, but referees should use the video... ALWAYS OR NEVER!
because if they use video for a fault, why they didn't use the video when the ball was IN the goal but fight off by the goalkeeper (so, the goal wasn't accepted) ?
There is a real controversy about that in many countries

Philipp Lenssen [PersonRank 10]

German Spiegel reports that the lineman says he didn't use the video, he saw it himself. Using videos isn't allowed. However there are a few contradicting statements from the various people involved...

> Are you celebrating in germany or are you sad?.

We are all celebrating here, especially because Germany won a great 3rd place. The World Cup went really well and the German team played excellent. Many young players, maybe in 4 years they get even better. Italy deserved to win, and the party yesterday night was great... there are lots of Italian-heritage people in Germany!

Zidane now commented on the incident. According to German Spiegel, he says that he's sorry tho he doesn't regret what he did, as Materazzi said something bad about his mother and sister.

<<he says that he's sorry tho he doesn't regret what he did>>
sorry and regret isnt (almost) the same thing?

and yeah, i saw it too..(on the news, here in Israel). he said that he would rather get a punch in the face than hearing what he said. :/
