Zinedine Zidane's Headbutt On Marco Materazzi Immortalised With Statue At Pompidou Centre

Zinedine Zidane's infamous headbutt on Marco Materazzi in the 2006 World Cup final has been immortalised at the Pompidou Centre in Paris with its very own statue.

The Frenchman headbutted the Italian defender in the chest as he literally bowed out of football with a red card six years ago.

Materazzi allegedly aired a slur about Zidane's sister, and the Frenchman's reaction registered the 14th red card of his career.

The Pompidou Centre, which houses the Musée National d'Art Moderne, has erected the display outside of the building.
