Pepe: Real Madrid will “fight to the end” to secure La Liga title
Pepe insists Real Madrid will not give up in their quest to secure the La Liga title, despite Wednesday’s 2-1 defeat at Sevilla.
Los Blancos now find themselves adrift of both Atlético Madrid and Barcelona at the top of the standings, after a second loss in four days.
Pepe, who was born in Brazil but represents Porto at international level, praised Sevilla’s work ethic, but expects Real Madrid to bounce back against Rayo Vallecano on the weekend.
“Well done to Sevilla. They fought hard,” he told Canal+.
“We couldn’t win this match but there’s a lot left for this season.
“We’re still at the top and we’ll fight until the end. We’ll try to win on Saturday. We’ll keep fighting as long as the club is still in it.
“Sevilla didn’t have to do much to win. They had two chances and scored two goals.
“These things happen. We need to regroup and prepare ourselves to play Rayo Vallecano.”
