Duda’s wife, Arancha defended Real Madrid centre-back Pepe after the Portuguese international put his spikes into her husband’s leg in a challenge that went uncalled, insisting that Pepe’s actions were unintentional and that he adores her husband.

Pepe catched Duda on the knee with studs, but stayed on the pitch.

Following the match, Arancha posted a photo of Pepe with her three daughters, showing that there was no ill intent, despite Pepe’s reputation.

“I know many of you are bothered by Pepe’s challenge but I know it was unintentional and he adores my husband.”

For his part, Duda recognised that the hard challenge was unintentional, but felt the referee should have shown a card.

“”It’s one of those things that happens in football and it’s a shame the referee didn’t see it clearly. It seems cards were only going in the one direction.”
