Zidane on the headbutt

"Of course I reproach myself," Zidane told El Pais, "but, if I say 'sorry', I would also be admitting that what he himself did was normal, and for me it was not normal.

"Things happen on the pitch. It's happened to me many times, but I could not stand it there. Because moreover ... it is not an excuse, but my mother was ill. She was in hospital. This people did not know, but it was a bad time.

"More than once they insulted my mother and I never responded, but there ... and it happened. And to apologise for this - if it was Kaka, a regular guy, a good guy, of course I would have apologised, but to this one...

"If I ask him forgiveness, I lack respect to myself and to all those I hold dear with all my heart. I apologise to football, to the fans, to the team. After the game, I went into the dressing room and told them, 'Forgive me. This doesn't change anything, but sorry everyone'.

"But to him I cannot. Never, never. It would be to dishonour me. I'd rather die. There are evil people, and I don't even want to hear those guys speak."

ps... I adored zidane then, and i adore him now.
