Neymar made to cower by Madrid's Pepe in hilarious clip

There’s few players in the world who evoke fear quite like Real Madrid’s Portuguese centre-back Pepe.

If his crazy eyes and no-nonsense style wasn’t enough to intimidate the vast majority of strikers, the fact that he has previous when it comes to literally physically attacking opponents seals the deal. And it would appear that Barcelona hot-shot Neymar, despite having most of the world at his feet, is no exception to the rule when it comes to forwards fearing the worst when they’re confronted by Madrid’s hatchet-man.

During last night’s Copa del Rey final the Brazilian wonderkid took exception to a tackle made by Fabio Coentrao. However after he fronted up to the full-back, and things looked as though they might take a turn for the ugly, he was quickly forced to backtrack as Pepe came steaming in.

The results are as you’d expect. Neymar begins to cower and covers his face, only for his would-be attacker to give him a big hug and send him on his way.

Watch the action unfold in the video above...
