Why Zidane? Why?
Okay, I was pretty pissed off when I saw that Italy won. Don't get me wrong for being racist and putting Italy down, that's not the case. The problem was Zidane and that Italy player he hatbutted.
Zidane, being a graceful football and a gentlemen with a good record of sportsmenship, could have done what he did out of stupidity. Think about it, Zidane has been playing football a long time and has endured a variety and numberous insults on and off the field, but never has he ever done, as far as i know, something so rash before. That Italian who he headbutted must have said something to him that really got under his skin, but what?
My guess would be that that Italian must had fun of Zidane's age, nationality, as well his failed attempt to headbutt that prefect pass earlier in the game into the goal. Zidane must have gotten enough of failing and the Italians, and so when that last insult reached his ear, he lost it.
That was just my theory, maybe the real reason is completely different. If you know the true story behind it, post it here for me please.
He called Zidane's mother a whore, that is why he got headbutted.
actually this is NOT the 1st time zidane has gone into a rampage, he stepped on a saudi arabia player in the france '98, and headbutted some dude in the champions league in 2000-2001
sorry Tsuku, but i must say for fucks sake so Zidan gave that mafia guy a headbut, who gives a fuck. I think its was great to end your career fighting, atleast he has somthing to show his grand kids.
Everyone can not be Gary Linkiker (never been booked, not even once).
Look at Cantona will always be a legend for kicking the crap out on that spectator....more fighting!!
I wouldn't call that a great end of a career...
I would be scared of going back to France if I was him.
I would kick his ass at the airport if I was a French football-fan. ^^
France would have lost with or with out zidan.
It’s not like the incident with that Wanka Rooney (now that’s dumb and stupid)
Zidan is an old man, let him have his fun two years from now he won’t even be able to headbut a chicken.
But on a serious note: just think about it, Zidan was thinking about the game, and realised that France was gonna lose, that means that Italy will be talked about and be in all the newspapers around the world. So he headbuts that mafia guy, and takes some of the lime light off Italy.
If he did not headbut that mafia guy we would only be reading about Italy winning the world cup, and this thread would not even been created.
Yeah for Zidan the lime light stealer!
I’m gonna go headbut a goat now, maybe I’ll get a thread dedicated to me:)
This is Zidane:
Sorry for the images, but the headbutt has no justification.
And no, Materazzi would never call someone son of whore because he is orphan of mother.
The only explanation could only be nervousism because they were sure of winning easily, and italy is not easy prey for nobody.
is that clip what actually happened in last nights game???
The first yes. Without adds (mortal kombat does not count).
Why would you headbutt someone, why not just punch them ... I don't get it? Is he so keen on keeping with the soccer trend of not using your hands?
