The Santiago Bernabeu stadium may be full or almost full in pretty much every Real Madrid game, fans from all over the world dream of attending at least one match there in their life, but a guy who played hundreds of games at that iconic stadium wearing the white jersey, told the fans of his former team that they’re simply not as great as they think they are.
Perhaps Real Madrid fans won’t like me saying this but they say Real Madrid fans transmit enthusiasm, but I don’t think they do. That’s not the reality
Pepe told beIN Sports, before comparing the fans of Los Blancos with those of Besiktas, the team where he has been playing since last summer.
The Besiktas fans are very passionate. When you go out onto the pitch the noise coming from the stands always hits you. The atmosphere at Besiktas is very different to that at Real Madrid
the Portugal international said, pronouncing something that… actually, is self-evident to anyone who has watched football both at Santiago Bernabeu and at Besiktas’ fantastic new (or even the old one) stadium.
In Turkey people really love sport, they only think about football. After games, we can hear the noise of the supporters until the early hours of the morning
Pepe added, underlying another difference between fans in general in the two countries.
