Head-scratcher: What has Pepe done to his hair?

No, seriously, we want to know. What has Pepe done to his hair?

The summer can be a bit boring for some footballers, but certainly there’s a better way than THAT to spice things up.

His hair looks like a bare tree!

Maybe it’s a defensive technique, since someone could poke an eye out going up for a header against him.

What makes matters worse is he’s currently in California for the International Champions Cup. If this becomes the next American fad hairstyle, we’re calling it quits. Bring back the Bieber … anything!

Hopefully Pepe lost a bet, and this coiffure nightmare is all just a joke that will soon disappear.

Pepe gets head stapled, returns to match after ugly collision

Crimson mask!

During Real Madrid’s Champions League match against Copenhagen on Wednesday, bruising defender Pepe, for once, found himself on the short end of an aerial collision. Suffering a huge gash over his right eye, Pepe was writhing in pain for several minutes before trainers came on to staple him back together.


You tend to have a little less sympathy when something like this happens to a guy who is notorious for dishing out horror tackles and general roughhousing. Still, you must commend Pepe for his toughness on this occasion.

Pepe later took to Twitter to thank his doctors and tell his fans he’s doing well:
