Revealed: The disgusting abuse that sparked Zidane’s fury

With the help of lip-reader expert the Daily Mail have deciphered the vile stream of racial and personal abuse by Marco Materazzi, which led to the violent outburst of Zidane.

First Marco Matterazzi called the French star the Italian equivalent of ‘n*****’, and then insulted both his mother and his Muslim background by saying he is the ‘son of a terrorist whore.

It had been revealed that earlier in the day that Zidane’s Mother is seriously ill. Wikipedia entry Zinedine Zidane is also suggesting the same thing as Daily Mail.

Both Zidane and Materazzi refused to comment on the incident. Zidane’s agent Alain Migliaccio said, Zidane told me Materazzi said something very serious to him but he wouldn’t tell me what. Reportedly, the deaf forensic lip-reader Jessica Rees was employed to analyze the video sequences with the help of an Italian translator. According to these reports, Materazzi spoke in Italian – a language understood by Zidane due to his time spent with Juventus F.C. – and first told him: "Hold on, wait, that one’s not for a nigger like you." As the players walked forward, Materazzi allegedly said: "We all know you are the son of a terrorist whore." Then, just before the headbutt, he was seen saying: "So just fuck off." According to Brazilian TV Rede Globo, a lip-reader claimed that Materazzi twice called Zidane’s sister a prostitute. Earlier claims about Materazzi having called his opponent a "dirty terrorist" have been denied by Materazzi, who reportedly said: "It is absolutely not true, I did not call him a terrorist. I’m ignorant. I don’t even know what the word means."

I’m not sure if Zidane’s response was justified but it’s certainly understandable. Some times verbal abuse causes more damage than physical assault.

    Well, what can one say. Zidane has a great history as the best player in the World and Europe several times. He’s won the 1998 World Cup and many other trophies. Who’s Materazzi? Someone who’s trying to win the World Cup as a defender and was given the chance of his lifetime when Nesta got injured.

    Why on Earth did Zidane do that??!?!?!?! If I were him, I would’ve swallowed Materazzi’s words, won the Worldcup and then filed a criminal file against him so he’d be a lesson to everyone else. But no! Zidane cannot do that in his last match ever, can he??!!??

    You guys will not like what I’ll say, but this is the truth. Whatever were the words Materazzi used to abuse Zidane, he was right, not because he said the truth, but because Zidane proved it.

    Just for the record, this is not the first time Zidane headbuts someone. Can’t remember the date, but he’s done it during his time at Juventus in the Champions League and got nothing for it. Not even a yellow card.

  2. Exactly, I also wish Zidane would’ve swallowed Materazzi’s words, won the Worldcup and then filed a criminal case against him as you’re suggesting. I guess that’s what millions, if not billions of viewers were/are thinking. It would have been an ideal case and happy ending for Zidane. But Materazzi threw a bait and Zidane fell into it, we expected a football god to behave like a god but he (Zidane) proved to be a mere mortal. In his recent interview Zidane said that he’s a man first and foremost. I feel sorry for him but totally understand his actions.
