“We have to keep fighting and prepare for the next game”, said the defender.
Pepe was in the starting eleven in the derby against Atlético and after the game he gave his impression of the match: “We tried everything. In the first half we deserved to be ahead, but that's football for you. We had a lot of ball but we didn't take many risks from outside the area. They got a goal from a set piece and once again it was a move in which we should have been better positioned. We have to keep fighting and prepare for the next game".

On the first goal they conceded, which came from a corner, he said: "We work on everything. Maybe we don't have enough concentration in the set pieces, but we have to keep working and ask the fans for their support, because we need them now more than ever. We have to be strong and we have to be a bit more together to fight for everything".

"We have to pick ourselves up and fight. We have a great group, with a lot of quality. I didn't notice any whistling but if the fans whistled then they're right, that's why it's such a great club”.
