During Real Madrid’s clash with Roma, Seydou Keita rekindled an almost three year old feud between himself and Pepe when he refused to shake the Portuguese defender’s hand before the match.
With the European giants meeting in Texas, an old feud between Seydou Keita and Pepe reared it’s head in front of the stunned crowd at the Cotton Bowl Arena in Dallas.
The acrimony between the duo goes back to when Keita was a Barcelona player and the midfielder accused Pepe of calling him a monkey during an El Clasico meeting.
Clearly yet to forgive the Real Madrid defender for the alleged slur, Keita refused to shake Pepe’s hand prior to the game. With Gareth Bale looking on, Keita then threw an open water bottle towards Pepe that appeared to strike the Portuguese defender on the shoulder.
