In Real Madrid’s game against Valencia this weekend, Pepe makes a tackle and then gets tapped from behind. Unsurprisingly, Pepe goes down like his leg has been blown off by a cannonball. Real Madrid teammate Alvaro Arbeloa tries to get Pepe to stop embarrassing himself and get off the ground, but Pepe kicks out at him. (It’s a shame he wasn’t red carded for that.)
