Video: Pepe had a nasty face wound stapled shut on the pitch last night (Warning: Graphic Content)
Some will say it couldn’t have happened to a nicer chap and all that but it’s hard not to feel a degree of sympathy for Pepe after this.
The Real Madrid defender has a reputation for being shady and conniving on the pitch and is a figure that fans love to hate, often because it only takes slightest of contact for him to go to ground and act as if he has been shot by a sniper in the stands.
There can be no denying that he was in genuine pain after he clashed heads with Copenhagen’s Daniel Braathen during Real’s 4-0 win at the Bernabeu last night, a clash that caused a fairly nasty cut and heavy bleeding around Pepe’s right eye.
The Real Madrid medics were forced into immediate action and stapled the wound shut while Pepe was still on the pitch, a procedure that was caught up close and personal and in quite graphic detail by the cameras so if you’re the squeamish sort and are afraid that you breakfast might suddenly repeat on you, we would advise you to look away now.
