Why do we need some way to justify it, where we try to blame the Italian player for somehow provoking it, and not simply let Zidane bear responsibilty for his own actions?
In the 98 World Cup, he got a red card and was suspended for two games for stomping on a Saudi Arabian player. And, five years ago, Zidane also received a red card for butting another player in a Championship League match. Did those other two players also somehow provoke Zidane as wel?
