Sampdoria’s Delvecchio: Materazzi provoked my reaction

Delvecchio said: “I made a mistake and I apologise for it, but I would like Materazzi to admit that he provoked my reaction.

“He said that I wanted to hurt Adriano and Julio Cesar, that is not true. If he had spoken to me in a different way I wouldn’t have reacted that badly. What I did was wrong, but you should read Materazzi’s lips.”
