Former Chelsea midfielder warns against bid for Real Madrid defender


Former Chelsea midfielder Ray Wilkins believes the club should not make a move for Real Madrid defender Pepe to strengthen the defensive department.

Reports in England claim that the 32-year-old is not part of new coach Rafa Benitez's plans and is a target for Manchester City and Chelsea.

In Spain, he is known for his occasional rush of blood to the head.

And Wilkins believes the Blues should pursue someone a little less hot-headed.

"Jose Mourinho obviously knows Pepe from Real Madrid," Wilkins told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.

"I'm told, off the field, he's a diamond of a young man.

"But watching him, he frustrates the life out of me. I hate watching him. He's a feigner and a red card walking."
