Materazzi has declared Lucio, now with Palmeiras, should retire.
âItâs difficult to talk about Materazzi, because I arrived in Italy in 2009 and the last time I saw him play well was in 2006,â said Lucio.
âPerhaps it hurts him that before I arrived heâd never got past the Champions League Round of 16.
âMaterazzi is a bit repressed, but on the pitch he was very nasty as he went in to hurt his opponents. I played alongside him and heard him say he played to hurt the opposition.
âNow he behaves the same way off the field â as a nasty person.â
