Real Madrid defender Pepe dedicated his goal against Deportivo La Coruna yesterday to coach Jose Mourinho.

Pepe struck, along with a hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo, to help Real to a 4-1 win.

"The coach always asks for the most from me, that I'm focused, I did not leave the line and so my goal was a gesture of thanks to him," said Pepe.

"Maybe I'm in the prime of my career, I have just recently become a father and this is very important for me. Hopefully my good form is prolonged for a long time."
