London: A door in Leipzig's World Cup stadium, which was damaged by an angry Zinedine Zidane after his disappointing performance against South Korea, will be put on display.

The Real Madrid midfielder had a poor game and picked up his second yellow card of the tournament. Frustrated by his performance, Zidane took a huge kick at the door with his studs up and left several marks.

According to a report in Evening Standard, stadium manager Winfried Lonzen first thought of asking FIFA for compensation but later changed his mind and decided to preserve the damaged door as a memento.

``At first, I thought I would ask for compensation for the damage from FIFA, then I thought it would be good to keep the holes as a memory to one of the greatest footballers of all time,'' Lonzen said. UNI
