The Portuguese defender can really wind up players and fans with his aggressive and sometimes petulant actions. During the World Cup, he was sent off for the 12th time in his career.
However, he has shown that he has a generous side to him off the pitch, with a fantastic gesture this Christmas season that will help 200 families.
As per AS:
The Real Madrid player paid for 9,000 kilos of food out of his own pocket and was involved in distributing the packages to disadvantaged families the Madrid neighbourhood of Las Rozas, where the Portugal international lives. With the amount of food purchased Pepe’s idea was to ensure that these people also have a Merry Christmas.
He gets a tough time from the media but credit where credit is due. Fair play to Pepe on this one.
