Former Real Madrid defender Pepe has criticised the Los Blancos supporters, saying they lack enthusiasm.
The Portugal international won three Champions League titles, three La Liga crowns and two Club World Cup medals at Real.
Pepe, who left the La Liga champions to join Besiktas in the last transfer window, claims the Real fans do not transmit enthusiasm.
"Perhaps Real Madrid fans won't like me saying this but they say Real Madrid fans transmit enthusiasm but I don't think they do. That's not the reality," Portugal international Pepe told beIN Sports.
"The Besiktas fans are very passionate. When you go out onto the pitch the noise coming from the stands always hits you.
"The atmosphere at Besiktas is very different to at Real Madrid. In Turkey people really love sport, they only think about football.
"After games, we can hear the noise of the supporters until the early hours of the morning."
