Video: Pepe Kicks out at Real Madrid Teammate Alvaro Arbeloa
Pepe requires assistance from no man, friend or foe.
And if he keeps doing this kind of stuff, he won't get it, either.
Renowned Real Madrid hardman Pepe lashed out with yet another violent kick aimed at a fellow player during Real's match against Valencia on Sunday at the Bernabeu.
That's not newsworthy. That happens all the time (scroll down for visual evidence).
The newsworthy part was that the other player was Alvaro Arbeloa, his Real Madrid teammate.
Well done, Pepite! Now, how did we get here?
The incident started with Pepe coming out second best in a challenge with Valencia's Pablo Piatti. Piatti and Arbeloa then ran by as the game moved on, and Arbeloa tried to help his teammate to his feet.
That's when Pepe kicked him. Visibly surprised, Arbeloa nonetheless (and admirably) returned to his fallen teammate and tried again. No dice, again.
Pepe then pretty much ignored Arbeloa, though he did use his teammate's help to get up off the pitch before screaming something (obscene, no doubt) at the referee or Piatti or whoever would listen.
Then the game moved on and everybody laughed at Pepe.
That is, until we thought about what he might do to us if he ever found out about it. Then the snickering stopped.
The match finished scoreless, by the way, and Real Madrid's lead atop La Liga's Primera Division is now down to four points over Barcelona.
Real and Barca are scheduled to meet April 22 at Camp Nou in a potential title-decider.
