The unforgettable and absolutely massive statue that immortalizes Zidane’s infamous headbutt to Marco Materazzi has a new home: Qatar.
According to Doha News, the statue was bought by the Qatar Museums Authority for an undisclosed sum and will be a permanently installed on the Corniche near Al Mourjan restaurant.
Jean Paul Engelen, QMA’s director of Public Art, told Doha News that he expects the sculpture to be popular in Qatar:
"Yes, we expect a lot of people to want to take photos with it, and of it.
It’s an impressive piece. It’s a huge sculpture, and it’s done in the same style as Greek Mythological statues, but this glorifies human defects instead. It shows that although we sometimes treat footballers like gods, they’re not - they’re just human beings.”
