He said: "I was tugging his shirt, he said to me 'if you want my shirt so much I'll give it to you afterwards,' I answered that I'd prefer his sister."Materazzzi preferred Zidane's sister huh. Well, I think he would change his mind after seeing this YouTube video of "Zidane's sister" in action.
Materazzi added: "It's not a particularly nice thing to say, I recognise that. But loads of players say worse things.

Materazzi was later handed a two-match ban from world governing body Fifa, while Zidane was banned for three games and fined £3,260.
