"Cristiano is a very complete player. He has all the qualities to be an athlete and, for that, to me is a complete footballer and the best in the world", he said. In previous hours to visit the Riazor Stadium for facing Deportivo La Coruña, the Portuguese central defender highlighted the atmosphere that white team will find as a great danger alongside a team in a difficult situation.
"Riki (Deportivo striker) scored us a goal in Madrid and will be a dangerous player but I think their strength remains on the players and the fans of Deportivo, which are very strong. They are at the bottom of the table and must win, it is why they will be very motivated to win Real Madrid".
Pepe, who has played two games since recovering from an ankle injury, highlighted the competitiveness that exists in the Real Madrid at this time of the season in which their options for titles are at stake: "Every day we have a hard workout because we all want to play. We are 25 players and we want to play. This is good for the club and difficult for our coach. We try to give the best of each to play in the next match so the coach can choose the best players to face the game and help the team" he said.
