Pepe bitch slaps Aly Cissokho with his foot
Foot, meet face
Real Madrid defender Pepe, a special brand of mental footballer, appeared genuinely contrite in 2009 after receiving a 10 game ban for breakdancing all over Javier Casquero during a draw with Getafe:
I’ve seen the incident repeated and I insist I don’t recognise myself. I was only aware of what I did at the end of the game. That’s why I spoke to the press immediately to apologise to everyone. I’m human and everybody has a bad moment in their life, but I can assure that this is not going to happen again. I also have a family and I wouldn’t like them to suffer for what I’ve done.
However, lunatics will be lunatics, and the 28-year-old was back at it last night, displaying some extraordinary agility by axe kicking Lyon’s Aly Cissokho in the face for having the temerity to try tackle him. Oh, that Pepe!
