Real Madrid defender Pepe has taken aim at FIFA president Sepp Blatter.

Pepe, ahead of Portugal's World Cup playoff with Sweden, rapped Blatter for mocking teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

"I hope that doesn't have any effect [on the Sweden tie]. We all know that it's not normal that Cristiano has only been named the best player in the world once", he claimed.

"That just goes to show that a lot of strange things happen in football. Those of us inside the game know it and it's up to you journalists to bring them to light."
