The greatest soccer player of the past 20 years??
The Brazilian nightmare??
Call him what you want, truth is; his head butt of the Italian player Materazzi at the World Cup final is just not acceptable.
And I don't want to hear no excuses. This is nothing new to Zidane, he has had many irresponsible moments on the field.
Zidane seems to have always had issues with discipline.
He was suspended for France's final group match in this World Cup after receiving yellow-card warnings for fouls in each of France's first two matches.
During group play of the 1998 World Cup, he received a two-game suspension for stamping on the back of a Saudi Arabian player.
In 2000, he was barred for five matches after head-butting an opponent while playing for Juventus of Turin in the Champions League, Europe's most prestigious club tournament.
I don't know about the call but the ref sure took his time and it seems that the call was only made after a re-play was shown on the screens, and that is a violation of FIFA rules, this is not the NFL, you don't call a foul based on a replay.
I don't want to be in his shoes
