“When I was at Juventus, Materazzi made me a killer tackle and injured me. He was a tough player, but there are different ways to show that. Maldini was tough too, but he always went for the ball. Instead, Materazzi really wanted to hurt you.
Some years later, I had my revenge. It was in a 2010 derby, when I was playing in Milan. In the second half, I made a taekwondo kick to Materazzi and I sent him to the hospital. Stankovic asked me why I did it, and I told him that I have been waiting for that moment for four years. I told him that no one messes with Zlatan”.
