Pepe Reveals He Slept In His Mother's Bed Until He Was 17

He's seen as one of football's hardmen but former Real Madrid defender Pepe has revealed he slept in his mother's bed until he was 17.

Although he's represented Portugal on 113 occasions, Pepe grew up in Brazil and moved country to further his football career in his late teens.

And while he had developed physically, he still required a great amount of love and attention from his mum.

Speaking to Portuguese outlet Tribuna Expresso, he said: "Until I came to Portugal, at the age of 17, I slept with my mother, so imagine what it was like [laughter].

"I was already big and I slept with my parents, so I imagine my father did not like to have me there [laughs].

"This is interesting: the other day I was talking to my mother and she was telling me that I really liked to run my hand through her hair and I told her that maybe I already knew it would be too much time away from her."
