Képler Laveran Lima Ferreira, ComM (born 26 February 1983), commonly known as Pepe (Brazilian Portuguese: [ˈpɛpi]), is a Portuguese professional footballer for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Portuguese national team as a central defender. During his professional career he has played for Marítimo, Porto and Real Madrid, with individual and team success with the latter two clubs. An aggressive, physically strong and tenacious defender, Pepe is known for hard-tackling style of play, and is considered by pundits to be one of the best defenders in world football; however, despite his defensive abilities, he has also drawn criticism in the press at times, due to his tendency to pick up cards, as he has occasionally shown violent or unsportsmanlike behaviour on the pitch.

Born and raised in Brazil, Pepe has represented Portugal over 70 times, playing at two World Cups and three European Championships, and was a member of the team that won UEFA Euro 2016, also reaching the semi-final of UEFA Euro 2012.
