Real Madrid defender Pepe: Pique just like me (really!)

Real Madrid defender Pepe says Barcelona rival Gerard Pique can "get carried away" with what he does on social media.

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."
