Pepe was asked about Pique's antics on Cadena Ser.
"I don't know him, but as a player, he's a really good player. I like his way of playing. He has quality.
"As for Barça's public relations, he sometimes gets carried away, like me on the pitch a few years ago. It's his thing, but from outside I think he could avoid all that."
Pepe was also asked which Barça player he'd sign for Real Madrid. After thinking for a few moments, he said: "No, I think we're alright... Andre Gomes? Yes, we played together in the national team, but he wanted to go to Barcelona."
