Pranksters! Pepe & Marcelo con teammates at Real Madrid with fake injury

Pepe and Marcelo combined for a childish, but nonetheless funny prank at Real Madrid yesterday.

The Brazilian pair – neither of them strangers to exaggerating the effect of a tackle in real games, teamed up to hoodwink their teammates and coaching staff, by pretending Marcelo had injured Pepe.

Pepe did what comes natural – he rolled around acting as if he’d been taken out by a sniper, until the worried coaching staff got too close, at which point the pair leaped up in amusement.

Good to see they rehearse their theatrics at training.

Practice makes perfect.
