MADRID- RealMadridmanager Jose Mourinho has hit back at his own player Pepe after the defender said Mourinho ought to have more respect for club captain Iker Casillas. Mourinho believes Pepe's rebellion is purely because he himself has lost his first-team place to Raphael Varane. "It is very easy to analyse the Pepe thing. His problem has a name, and it is Raphael Varane," Mourinho said. "It is not easy for a 31-year-old man with experience to be run over by a 19-year-old kid. The problem is simple, Pepe's life has changed. He was an indisputable starter and he no longer is. It is one of my few decisions that isn't discussed in public because all my decisions are discussed in public.” –AFP
