Zidane Makes Peace with Materazzi in Milan

"9th July, 2006. Italy and France play the World Cup final under the eyes of the planet. With the score 1-1 and overtime taking place, Marco Materazzi grabs the jersey of Zinedine Zidane, who is playing his last official match. The frenchman fights back and asks him in italian, "What's wrong? Do you want to have my jersey?" The defender provokes him: "I'd rather have the whore that is your sister."

What happened afterwards became the most famous headbutt in the history of football and ended with Zizou walking of to the dressing rooms after the fourth referee, Spaniard Maderina Cantalejo, saw the action in a video.

The fifth great in world football finished his career by being sent-off in a World Cup final, which, to make things worse, France ended up loosing in a penatly shoot-out.

3rd November 2010. Hotel Meliá Milano, Milan. The place where the Real Madrid team is staying and a sort of holy shrine to José Mourinho, who made this wonderful place his headquarters during his two years with Inter Milan. Marco Materazzi comes over to visit his friend and ex-manager. While waiting for the Portuguese tecnician to arrive, he speaks to Alessandro Misani, the director of the hotel. Suddenly, in the hallway appears no other than Zinedine Zidane, whom he had never seen again and much less spoken to.

The two players salute and begin a conversation , cold at first, that is soon turned into a peace treaty. The scene finished with Zidane and Materazzi sharing an emotional hug. The past is forgotten."

And as a fan of both, I'm so touched by this beautiful gesture :'D Matrix/Zizou PIC SPAM, PLS!
