But it is Pepe who may end up with the most severe punishment as reports from Portuguese newspaper A Bola allege the report from referee Joao Pinheiro states that Pepe kicked a Sporting director .

The director in question has not been named in the report but according to article 145 of the Disciplinary Regulation of the League of Clubs, this is considered a ‘very serious disciplinary offence’ which can incur a ban ranging from two months to two years.

A lengthy ban could mean the end of Pepe’s career – given he turns 39 years of age later this month.
