UD Almería football club owner Turki Al-Sheikh posted pictures of his meeting with Zinedine Zidane, recreating the Frenchman's infamous headbutt on Marco Materazzi in the 2006 World Cup final.

Al-Sheikh, who bought UD Almería last summer, was also pictured meeting current UD Almería Jose Maria Gutierrez “Guti”.


Marco Materazzi, the Italian footballer at the receiving end of Zidane’s 2006 World Cup final headbutt, responded to the photos on Twitter, adding that he hoped to see Al-Sheikh soon.

Zidane is the latest football legend to meet with Al-Sheikh, who is the current Chairman of Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Entertainment, among others like Lionel Messi and Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho.
