Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic has revealed what Chelsea attackers should expect from Porto defender Pepe ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League game.
Kovacic and Pepe were teammates at Real Madrid.
He said: “I just need to say that I know Pepe is an amazing guy and an amazing team-mate.
“I just appreciate the time that I had with him at Real Madrid. He was amazing with me and I love him.
“As a player, he is amazing. We know what Pepe can bring to his team. A lot of experience and he is a fighter who brings a good spirit to his teams.
“I don’t need to worry because our strikers are used to playing in the Premier League against tough opponents, every centre-back is quite difficult. It will be another game full of big players and we will be prepared for that.”
