Pepe, now 41, concludes his contract with Porto, leaving his future in football uncertain as he decides whether to continue playing or retire. During his time at Porto, he amassed an impressive collection of trophies, including four league titles, five Portuguese Cups, four Super Cups, one League Cup, and one Intercontinental Cup.

Kepler Laveran de Lima Ferreira, known as Pepe, originally joined Porto in 2004 from Maritimo. After three seasons, he moved to Real Madrid in 2007, where he spent ten successful years. He then played for a season and a half at Turkish side Besiktas before returning to Porto in 2019. Across his two spells with Porto, Pepe played a total of 290 games and scored 17 goals.

As of now, Pepe has not announced whether he will retire from football or continue playing, nor has he confirmed if he will bid farewell to the Portugal national team following their quarter-final exit in the European Championship against France.
