Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger claims he understands why Zinedine Zidane lost his temper with Inter talisman Marco Materazzi.
Schweinsteiger felt the veteran antagonist was out of line after Inter's 3-2 win at the Allianz Arena dumped Bayern out of the Champions League.
"I understand how Zidane felt," he said.
"The Inter defender did nothing but try and provoke even from the dressing room.
"It wasn't the right behaviour," he concluded.
