Pepe produces ridiculous reaction when Felipe Luis touched his face

We all know Pepe is no stranger to controversy.

The Portuguese defender isn’t exactly squeaky clean on the pitch and he was heavily involved during Real Madrid’s Champions League final against Atletico Madrid.

He shockingly gave away a penalty when he needlessly fouled Fernando Torres just three minutes after half-time. Torres received the ball in the box with his back to goal and Pepe dived in, going straight through the back of the striker. It was a crazy decision and a stonewall penalty.

Atletico Madrid couldn’t capitalise on Pepe’s moment of madness, though, when Antoine Griezmann smashed the penalty against the crossbar.

But Pepe was involved once more.

After clashing with Felipe Luis, the defender was lying on the floor after the foul. Madrid were winning 1-0 at the time and the controversial centre-back was obviously trying to waste some time.

Luis tapped his face to apologise for his little push.

But Pepe thought that Luis had slapped him and produced a ridiculous reaction as he rolled around on the floor.

It was embarrassing to see from a centre-back.

Twitter was full of people mocking Pepe for his ridiculous behaviour.

Luckily English referee Mark Clattenburg saw right through the theatrics and ordered Pepe to get on with the match.

There’s no place for that in football.
