Probably the “Pepe fouls”, tackles with often a lot of excessive force.
And then I saw this tweet:
1080 – Pepe is the player in La Liga this season to have played the most minutes without receiving a single card. Boss.

That was even before the game against Valencia this weekend, where he even did not get a card. Pepe is the player in La Liga with most minutes without receiving a single card. Wonderful!
Great play, Pepe! Keep it that way.
Because the way you used to play, was very dirty. Below I’ve added a few of Pepe’s tackles of the past.
