'So Just Fuck Off' Was The Nicest Thing Materazzi Said

The Daily Mirror hired a lip reader. Will Materazzi plead ignorance again?

Daily Mirror (uk): Revealed: The disgusting abuse that sparked Zidane's fury

It is the question on every football fan's lips. What did the Italian footballer say to prompt Zinedine Zidane's shocking headbutt in the closing moments of Sunday's World Cup final?

The answer, it has emerged, was a vile stream of racial and personal abuse.

First Marco Matterazzi called the French star the Italian equivalent of 'n*****', and then insulted both his mother and his Muslim background by saying he is the 'son of a terrorist whore.


With the help of an expert lip reader the Daily Mail was able to decipher what led to the violent outburst.

First defender Marco Materazzi spoke in Italian - a language understood by Zidane who once played for Italian side Juventus - grabbed his opponent and told him 'hold on, wait, that one's not for a n***** like you.'

It is not clear whether the Italian was referring to the ball heading their way or his own groping of Zidane.

The expert, who can lip read foreign languages phonetically and translate with the aid of an Italian interpreter, was unable to see what Zidane said in reply.

But she saw that as the players walked forward Materazzi said: 'We all know you are the son of a terrorist whore.'

Then, just before the headbutt, he was seen saying,: 'So just f*** off.'

Check this pic I made about Materazzi and Zidane:

And please share. Fascism provokes anger. Zidane's emotional outburst was normal and entirely justifiable. He was humiliated and that's the worst that can happen to a person.

Plz share the pic.
