According to Malaga striker Albert Martos Luque, Pepe instructed the home side to look at the scoreboard to see that Real Madrid was winning 2-0 going into halftime on Saturday. Luque did not like this comment, so he confronted the Real defender and tugged at his ear. That kicked off a minor scuffle and Real went on to win 4-1.
After the match, Luque told reporters of Pepe:
"He is a great center back. But to wear that shirt [Real Madrid's] you have to be a gentleman and I doubt that and more."
Pepe not a gentleman? What would give you that idea?
I wonder if Luque also thinks you have to be a gentleman to wear a Malaga shirt and whether ear pulling qualifies as proper behavior.
Anyway, this clip has the added bonus of showing Jose Mourinho pulling up his socks. So enjoy that.
