Pepe said he was looking to win his fourth Champions League of his career this season with Porto.

“I’ve won the Champions League three times, and this season will be the fourth, God willing. We know it’s going to be very difficult, against a tough team like Liverpool, who play perfectly in the image of their coach. We’re the same team that we’ve been throughout the tournament, we fight for everything,” said Pepe.

Pepe complimented Porto’s defense, with centerback partner Eder Militao on his way to Real Madrid next year. 

“In this Porto team we have very good defenders. There are central defenders here that, in my opinion, could play well for a club like Real Madrid because they have a lot of quality. This has been proven as Militao has already been signed by Real.”
