Zidane says Materazzi insulted his mother and sister

Zidane won’t say what Materazzi said exactly but he did confirm that Materazzi insulted his sister and mother.

He said words that were very difficult to accept which he repeated many times – they were more difficult to accept that just gestures.

It was difficult to turn away as they happened so quickly.
They are very serious and personal. He mentioned my mother and my sister.

He mentioned them once and I feel bad but you hear them a third time… these words, I would rather have taken a punch in the jaw than have heard that. I reacted – it certainly wasn’t a gesture to make.

It’s true that two or three million people saw that … and children, and I apologise to them. I do apologise but I don’t regret my behaviour because regretting it would mean he was right to say what he said.

Meanwhile, Zidane could be stripped of his Golden Ball award because of the old ‘conduct detrimental to the game’ clause.

Finally, check out this Zidane flash game. (thanks There’s Your Karma.) It’s very amusing but nowhere near as fun or addicting as the Yeti swatting a penguin flash game.
