A lip-reader told The Sun that Marco Materazzi called Zidane a “son of a terrorist whore” before the French Algerian was sent off in Sunday’s explosive match.

A French Football Federation source said: “If you insult Zidane’s mother you are asking for trouble. Combine such words with a reference to terrorism, which French Algerians are very sensitive about, and a violent reaction might appear inevitable.”

Top lip-reader Marianne Frere revealed the Italian told Zidane — who understands the language after playing for Juventus — a high ball was “not for feccia like you”.

Zidane smiled at Materazzi as he walked away. But there was another exchange, Zidane turned and floored him with a butt to the chest. The lip-reader claimed the Italian had said: “We all know you are the son of a terrorist whore.”

He added: “Viffanculo”. (f*** off). A source close to the Italian squad claimed that after twisting Zidane’s nipple, Materazzi asked him: “What, don’t you like it?” The French captain replied: “A bit too hard to turn me on.”

But Materazzi shouted: “Well, I did it that way because I know that’s how your mother likes it.”

And last night a cousin claimed ex-Everton defender Materazzi called him a terrorist to get him sent off. Rabah Zidane said the Italian chose the “most vicious insult he could muster”.

He added: “My cousin is gentle but was provoked by a truly savage insult.”

Dad-of-four Zidane has refused to reveal publicly what provoked him to launch the attack.

But his agent Alain Migliaccio said: “I am not justifying his actions but the Italian said something very bad. He just cracked.”

Materazzi’s agent denied any racist slur — and said the attack came when Zidane offered to swap shirts later and the Italian replied: “‘I’d rather take the shirt off your wife.”

French president Jacques Chirac hailed him as “a genius of world football” as he greeted the French squad in Paris. He added: “You are also a man of heart, commitment, conviction. That’s why France admires and loves you.”

Lip readers reckon the words terrorist and mother were said just before ZZ was sent off for butting Marco Materazzi.

The Italian denies the claims but Zidane's agent says the Frenchman, may reveal what was actually said later on it the week, was provoked.

Despite Zinedine Zidane's red card the French gave him a hero's welcome on his return home. The right thing to do?
