Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho threatens to punish Pepe for his stamp on Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has threatened to punish Pepe over his stamp on Lionel Messi.

The defender appeared to step on the Argentine's hand during Madrid's 2-1 defeat in the first leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-final at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Pepe has since apologised to Messi, claiming that it was an accident.

"I haven't seen it, but obviously if it is deliberate he will be punished," said Mourinho.

The second leg takes place at the Nou Camp next week.
