Preceding to Ramadhan festivities, where moslems all of the word celebrate the day by giving apalogy to other, Marco Materazzi, Italian Football defender, once more make Zidane angry. In his new book “What I really said to Zidan”, Mataerazzi explore his affair with the former France captein Zizou.

Materazzi seemingly performs as a hero by donating the book to children’s charity Unicef. In fact, what he has just performed, prove how silly of he himself. Zizou has the right to be hurt, but he of course is still a real “hero” who has a “noble” heart. I always support u, Zizou….

This is the story, quoted from http://politics.yahoo.com/s/afp/20061008/od_afp/fblitafrazidane_061008175408

After the French hit song, the jokes, videos games and adverts, there is now a new face to the most infamous headbutt of all time.

Italian defender Marco Materazzi is to publish a book containing 249 phrases he might have said to France captain Zinedine Zidane to invoke the now-retired midfielder’s wrath.

The book is called “What I really said to Zidane,” and Materazzi has been writing about it in a column on Italian sports newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport’s website.

“As you will see, dear reader, I found it funny to explore the absurdity of the whole affair,” said Materazzi.

The book is 100 pages long and contains 249 phrases, mostly ridiculous ones, among which his actual retort to Zidane is included.

Zidane disgraced himself in his final match before retirement by reacting to a Materazzi taunt by thudding his forehead into the big Italian defender’s chest, just minutes before the end of the World Cup final, which Italy went on to win on penalties.

Zidane was red-carded for his actions and a song written in homage to the headbutt the day after the final shot straight to the top of the French charts.

A few examples of the “witty” phrases contained in the book are as follows:

– “Hey! Where exactly is the sternum?”

– “Zinedine, what are you up to? You haven’t lost yet….and you’ve already shaved your head!”

According to Gazzetta, Materazzi will donate proceeds from the book to children’s charity Unicef.

It is due to go on sale for around 10 euros (12.60 dollars) in the coming days and features a picture of the headbutt on its front cover.
