Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has spoken with Pepe about his tarnished image.

El Confidencial says Pepe retains the president's full support, but has been challenged to clean up his reputation after Sunday's latest claims of taunting and dancing in front of Levante's players following victory.

The official statement released by Real, defending Pepe and insisting he had behaved impeccably, is part of a new campaign from Real to promote a more positive image of the Portugal defender.
