Materazzi Makes It Official
After slagging off Zinedine’s sister and getting a WWF style head butt in return, Marco Materazzi has formally apologized.
Not to Zizou, but to his sister. We’re not sure how exactly he did this (flowers? a card? perhaps he baked her some delicious bread), but he’s so serious about making it up, that he has invited Z to his home so they can work out their differences.
Fifa president Sepp Blatter has made it clear he wants the two to reconcile.
Earlier this week Materazzi revealed what he had said to Zizou: “I was tugging his shirt, he said to me ‘if you want my shirt so much I’ll give it to you afterwards,‘ and I answered that I’d prefer his sister.“
