Real Madrid skipper Casillas defends Pepe over 'Portuguese' comments

Real Madrid skipper Iker Casillas has defended comments made by teammate Pepe.

Pepe was quoted claiming there was a bias in Spanish football against Portuguese players.

Casillas remarked: "He was referring to when we go to away grounds. Their reception is always a bit over the top. We must call for calm in terms of football in general. People should support their teams but in a respectful way."
