Pepe was asked about the differences between the current Real coach and Manchester United manager Mourinho.
He told Cadena SER, “They're different, almost opposites really. One's a good guy, the other one's the bad guy... (laughs) Mourinho has a lot of experience as a coach, he's coached some of the best players around.
"Zidane only started last season, so you can't really compare their experience. But Zidane was a player and he knows what players need, he knows our way of thinking. Not signing anyone this summer was a vote of confidence for the squad."
