Pepe has no doubt that he would give Cristiano the Ballon dOr, believing that he is the "best player in the world". As for the comparisons with Messi, he stated that "it`s tough to pick, but Ronaldo is a more complete player." "He is a machine," he continued, claiming that "Cristiano deserves" the top individual accolade in world football.
Sticking with the subject of the Ronaldo-Messi debate, Pepe says that winning the Spanish league, "the most competitive in the world", with Real Madrid, should help Ronaldo defeat the Argentinian star for the prize.

The Portuguese centre-half acknowledged that hed joked with his "friends" about the match in a few training sessions, but stressed that "everyone will give their all to defend their interests" on the occasion, when they will be on opposing sides.
Finally, when asked about Hulk, the striker whose name is on everyone`s lips, and the chance of him signing for Real Madrid, the defender argued: "I don`t see him in Spain, he suits the Premier League."
