DTotD: Pepe kicks teammate thinking he’s someone else

Brooks Peck
Dirty Tackle

Increasingly wary of his own teammates since Kaka and Marcelo conspired to trip him, Pepe turned his violent fury on Alvaro Arbeloa during Real Madrid's 0-0 draw against Valencia on Sunday.

Worked into a paranoid delirium when by a tackle from Valencia's Pablo Piatti, Pepe kicked out at Arbeloa, who just wanted to check and see if he was OK. Pepe, of course, didn't look to see who he was kicking before he interrupted his fit to do so, which resulted in him connecting with Arbeloa instead of Piatti.

Will this regrettable error cause Pepe to take a moment to keep his wild anger in check before attacking people from now on? Probably not.
