The White player used him to justify his style
In an interview with football magazine Surface, the defense of Madrid Pepe has used a question about the hardness of his game to attack Barcelona player Neymar and defend his role in Real Madrid.
"Am I violent? People can say what they want, but Neymar has been shown more yellow cards than I..." [5 Pepe 10 Neymar this season]
"Real Madrid is an exemplary club. If I was as crazy as some say, I would never have been able to represent this club for so long."
