A big name in European football has revealed the secrets of his longevity…

On February 26, Képler Laveran Lima Ferreira, better known as Pepe, celebrated his 41st birthday. On March 12, he was on the field for the Champions League round of 16 second leg between Porto and Arsenal (1-0, 4-2 tab).

Despite his team’s defeat to the Gunners, the former Real Madrid defender and Dragons captain has shared the secrets to his longevity.

Passion as a driving force

“I take things day by day,” Pepe said first. My body is no longer that of a thirty-year-old or a twenty-year-old. I have to listen to my body to be honest with FC Porto. If I can’t continue another year, I will tell those in charge. »

“What I can say is that I am passionate about this sport. Good rest, healthy diet and proper preparation are all important,” he added.

And added: “Prevention is also crucial. I dedicate myself a lot to being an example, on and off the field, at the age of 41.”
