Former French defender Willy Sagnol, who now heads the Georgian national team, has spoken out about Zinedine Zidane’s firing for striking Italian footballer Marco Materazzi with his head to his stomach in the 2006 FIFA World Cup final on the FIFA official website.

– Do you blame Zidane for that suspension in the final?

– About 15 years back I shared the field with one of the world’s greatest stars, who was not only a fantastic footballer but also a great man. Perhaps it was the blood that struck him in the brain and temporarily rendered him human, and it is human nature to make mistakes. Unfortunately, it did not occur at the best of moments. While there was a ton of rage during the game, we can’t claim we might have prevailed if the sending-off hadn’t occurred. Football is a team sport, and this is the lesson that must be instilled in the young: we are accountable not just for our success, but also for the collective performance of the team.

When you have blood in your head on the field, it becomes a penalty for your team.
