Hi, Zidane's interview with Canal + is now over. I've just watched it and I'd like to report a few things he said.

About the Materazzi episode:
Zidane first asked him to stop pulling his T-Shirt and added, joking, that if he wanted, he could give it to him at the end of the match. (hence Zidane's smile at the beginning)
Just after that Zidane walked away but he heard Materazzi insulting his mom and his sister, and he repeated the insults.

As expected, Zidane refused to say the exact words but we can all assume them I guess. He insisted on the fact that the insults were very serious, very hard.

Zidane said that the culprit has to be punished, and according to him, the culprit is the one who provokes.

He then insisted on the fact that his gesture can't be forgiven but he said that he doesn't regret his gesture because to him, regretting it would mean that Materazzi's insults were right.

Finally, Zidane apologized towards the audience and especially the children. He said that he couldn't have acted that way 10 minutes before the end of his career for no reason.

Zidane appeared very calm, kinda moved and so simple.

Zidane
Zidane is the man

thanx for the info

Zidane is the biggest loser on the planet. FIFA will strip away the Golden Ball from him and award it to the true winner...Cannnavaro

you're welcome



Zidane is no God and I think he wants us to know that.
But he's clearly a hero

Yes, thanks for the info.

But...

I still think that Zidane as a 34-year-old, extremely experienced player, should have been able to behave and control himself, regardless of what the idiot had been saying.

If a young and green 18-year-old player resorted to violence like Zidane did, it would be less surprising. Zidane should know better.

I'm sorry I think the link I posted is not the good one. I'm not sure if there's already a video of his interview. I'll try to find it.

I think you're right. Zidane should have been used to hearing such things during games but apparently there was too much pressure around him because it was his last match etc. I think he acted like a man, forgetting he was on a field. That's a pity.

I'm not sure he was joking. of course he wouldn't tell you that... but look at his expression.......

of course nobody's interested in hearing Materazzi's version, what Zidane says is just puuuure truth. sure.

anyway, that wasn't so serious as I thought it was.
I still prefer the way we acted in Italy upon Totti and De Rossi's squalifications: they're grown men, let them deal with their own problems.
I don't understand why Zidane needs to be protected as if he was a god (which he clearly is NOT)... bah.

anyway, end of story.
we won, we lose, it's perfect

I'm pretty sure he was joking, Zidane hardly smiles.

Anyway even if it wasn't a joke, well it wasn't an insult

and even if Materazzi's words were an insult (not a racist one, after all), they weren't a headbutt
you know, I can't help but wonder what'd they do if it was the other way around (Materazzi hitting Zidane)...

I dunno...

How do you know that the insults were not racist?
The insults were for Zidane's mom and sister but we don't know what sort of insult it was. Zidane didn't tell. But it was probably racist + machist words.

I don't. how do you know they were?
Zidane said nothing about racist words, and Materazzi said he doesn't even know what "terrorist" means. what lips-readers and mind-readers say, I don't care. they're just speculating to sell more copies of their magazine or get more people to watch their shows.
my thought: Zidane made a big mistake, and France has been way too kind with him.

anyway, I hope they will give the Golden Ball to Cannavaro because he deserves it.

OK - so Zidane has apologized. Unless I'm mistaken Materazzi has not - let's see if he does.
