Most people blamed Zidane for France’s defeat.
If he had not hit Materazzi, he would have stayed on the field.
France may have won.
Instead, Zidane’s anger caused him to attack a player.
After this event, many supporters lost respect for Zidane.
He may have been the world’s best footballer once.
But today, this is not what people remember most about him.
They only seem to remember his bad behaviour.
But this is not true everywhere.
In Bangladesh, people still think that Zidane is great.
They think that he is a great footballer, and a great man.
In November 2006 Zidane travelled to Bangladesh.
He went to attend the opening of a factory there.
This factory was a new business.
Two different companies started this business together.
One of them was Danone, a French food company.
Its general aim is to “bring health through food to the majority of people.”
The other company was the Grameen Bank.
This bank operates a small loan system.
It has helped many poor people in Bangladesh to escape from their poverty.
Together, the two companies formed a new business - the Grameen Danone Foods Company.
This new company has the aim of producing healthy food products.
They want to help poorer people who have bad diets.
So, they decided to open a yoghurt making factory in Northern Bangladesh.
