Pepe not a killer

Real Madrid's bruising centre-back Pepe said on Tuesday that his reputation for on-pitch thuggery is undeserved and that he gets a "raw deal" from referees.

The Brazil-born Portugal international has found himself in hot water with the Spanish football authorities several times during his five-year career with Madrid.

"I get a raw deal in 60 per cent of games -- if I foul someone, it's like I've killed them," he said at a press conference on Wednesday.
