Zidane is trying to sue a magazine writer who called him an advertising ‘whore’

Call Zidane’s sister a whore and he’ll headbutt you during the World Cup final, call him a whore and he’ll take you to court.

In 2011, French humorist Christophe Aleveque wrote in SportMag of Zidane: “This guy is a advertising board with three braincells who cashes in on his image to an excessive degree. It is a form of prostitution. This guy is a whore.” Aleveque also added that Zidane is “as thick as a dick.” Zidane’s first attempt at a defamation lawsuit was dismissed, but he’s appealing, this time seeking just one euro in damages.

From SAPA-AFP:

Zidane, 40, told the appeal hearing the comments were “gratuitous and hurtful” to himself, his wife, children and parents.

“It is just not possible,” he told the court in a barely audible voice. [...]

Zidane is seeking a symbolic euro in damages, having dropped his initial demand for 75 000 euros ($ 100 000) damages to be paid to a charity of his choice.

The judge for this case: Marco Materazzi.
