"The historic headbutt that marked the end of France great Zinedine Zidane's international football career is now more than just a memory.

A five-metre-high bronze statue portraying Zidane aiming his shaven head at Italian opponent Marco Materazzi's torso has been erected in front of Paris's Centre Pompidou modern art museum.

Zidane lit up the field playing for Real Madrid and other professional teams and helped France to victory at the 1998 World Cup."

The head butt was as decisive and efficient as Zizou's playing.

He said : If you really want my shirt after the match, you can have it :)!

Materazzi replied : I would rather have your whore of a sister :eek: !

HeadButt !

Off the field Zidane is really a nice quiet and almost timid person.

Once a Hero, now a Legend.
