Horrific! Following a clash of heads, Real Madrid’s Pepe has to get his head stapled back together

Real Madrid defender Pepe is renowned for his dirty tactics but in Madrid’s 4-0 Champions League win over Copenhagen, he was on the other end of a hefty challenge.

The Portuguese star was involved in a clash of heads and the aftermath was pretty horrific as blood seemed to pour out from his head.

The Madrid physio had to, quite literally, staple Pepe’s head back together.

The hardman came back on and lasted the full match.

A video of the head clash is below the stapling GIF. Karma?
