Eto’o Imitates Zidane’s Headbutt

Inter Milan forward Samuel Eto’o does the Zidane head butt: You would think that if your name is in the same sentence as Zidane it would always be a good thing, but not in this case.

Eto’o, one of my favorite football players, because of his incredible skill on the ball and ability to score goals, and just pure desire to play, let his frustration get the better of him and head butted Chievo’s Bostjan Cesar right in the chest just like Zidane did in the World Cup final. Take a look at the Eto’o head butt in the video below.

What do you think? Really, it’s not nearly as bad as Zidane’s and it looks like Cesar makes much more out of it.

It was really something out of character for Eto’o, who is normally a true professional. I wonder what Cesar said or did to provoke Eto’o into head butting him?
