Real Madrid fans want Pepe to replace Varane for cup final

Posted on May 14, 2013 by admin

The question for Jose Mourinho to answer is whether he really wants to leave Real Madrid having just won the Copa Del Rey, or is it more important to him to assert his authority. We will know on Friday when Real Madrid and their city rivals Atletico run out onto the Bernabeu pitch for the Spanish cup final.

Mourinho publicly slammed his Portuguese central defender Pepe after Pepe said that Iker Casillas deserved more respect than he was getting. Mourinho replied by saying that Pepe was only upset because he had lost his place to the 20-year old French defender Rafael Varane.

There may have been some truth in that, but Varane is going to miss the final after he had surgery on his injured right knee yesterday. Mourinho has also claimed that he has not dropped certain players because of disagreements but because of football and form reasons.

We will see, because Pepe is one of the best defenders he has left and a massive percentage of the fans want him to play. His experience and strength could be crucial in dealing with the threat of Falcao.

It should not matter about relationships and showing who is the boss to the players now, because Mourinho is leaving. Hopefully he will want another trophy to add to his cv.
