[SPAIN] Angel Torres, president of Spanish club Getafe, says Real Madrid's defender Pepe should be suspended for at least 10 games for violently kicking Javier Casquero twice while the Getafe player was face down on the ground. In fact, 10 games would be lenient.
Pepe, a Portuguese international, barged Casquero to the ground from behind, then kicked him in the leg and in the back. He was given a straight red card.
"Pepe must be banned for at least 10 games," Torres said. "You cannot kick an opponent like that in any way! That kind of behavior cannot be tolerated and he should not have lost his temper."
Real Madrid coach Juande Ramos offered a laughable defense of his player:
"Pepe was annoyed with himself when he saw it was a penalty and wanted to kick the air, not the player," Ramos said. "I'm sure the disciplinary committee will see that he lost his head and didn't want to kick him."
He accidentally kicked him twice?
