Real Madrid defender Pepe has slammed Jose Mourinho, claiming people hated the club because of the Special One.

Mourinho had several fall outs during his time at the Bernabeu, clashing with Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola on several occasions, and then having a high-profile conflict with club legend Iker Casillas.

Pepe has now admitted that he ‘thanked God’ when Mourinho left, saying the club became much more respected again once Carlo Ancelotti took over.

‘Under Mourinho, people hated us when we got out there on the pitch,’ the Brazilian-born Portuguese international told Cadena Ser.

‘It lasted three years and thank God it went very quick.

‘Things changed when Carlo Ancelotti came in, you could see people started treating us different again.’

Pepe also praised the arrival of former Galactico Zinedine Zidane, who was initially appointed interim boss once Ancelotti was sacked, but was given the job on a full time basis after a terrific season with the club.

‘What happened with Mourinho is in the past now. I was strong and got over it. I maintained my high level at Madrid,’ he said

‘Mourinho and Zidane are very different, one could say they are opposites. But it’s not like one is bad and the other is good.

‘Mourinho has a lot of experience as a coach, with great clubs and players. Zidane has only just started in La Liga last year. But he has played at the highest level himself and always knows what’s expected on the pitch.

‘Zidane has been a player and knows what we think. He had a brilliant career at Madrid, so understands what the pressure is like here.

‘We need to try to enjoy these moments because they’ll end one day, and he’s given us all a vote of confidence by not signing new players,’ he added.
