Pepe is the most mentally unstable defender in international soccer. He's like the drunk guy outside of a bar who keeps giving the bouncer a hard time. Every 30 minutes, he steps outside for his cigarette, and just because he's a shithead, he keeps heckling the stoic guard. Eventually, he takes a cheap shot and expects to not get his ass beat. Yeah, okay Pepe.
That's exactly what happened when Barcelona's Sergio Busquets stamped on Pepe's head last weekend in what's been like the billionth El Clasico between the two. This may be a cynical reading of the situation, but Pepe—the dirtiest defender in La Liga—simply got what's been coming to him.
