Found April 09, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
During Sunday's scoreless draw between Real Madrid and Valencia, Real Madrid defender Pepe kicked teammate Alvaro Arbeola while down on the ground after being tackled by Valencia's Pablo Piatti.



Pepe seemed to be exaggerating his pain a little bit to try to draw a penalty on Arbeola as he rolled on the ground trying to figure out which part of his leg he should be grabbing. At that point, Arbeola came over to check on him to make sure he was OK, and Pepe kicked him with his "good leg". Pepe rolled around a bit more, but once he realized that no penalty was going to be called, he got up from the ground, still angry, but physically seemed to be fine.

Nothing good can come from kicking another player, whether a teammate or an opposing player. Let that be today's lesson for the kids at home.

H/T Dirty Tackle.
