Alvaro Arbeloa accused Gerard Pique of being ‘obsessed’ with Real Madrid and predicted the Barcelona defender will be doing comedy routines next.
Arbeloa spoke to the Press after Madrid hammered Malmo in their final Champions League group game but was asked about Pique’s celebratory tweet as Madrid’s Copa del Rey problems unfolded.
“One day we’ll see him in a comedy club talking about Madrid,” Marca reports Arbeloa as replying.
“It seems he’s obsessed with us. We leave our wounds open and we’ll reply at the right time,” he added, according to Sport.
Marca also quote Arbeloa as insisting Barca will forever trail Madrid when it comes to success.
“The last 10 years of Barca will not match the history of Madrid,” Arbeloa reportedly claimed.
Cristiano Ronaldo was also asked about Pique but, unlike his teammate, chose not to fan the flames.
“He doesn’t deserve comment. It’s not worth the publicity,” the Portuguese replied regarding his one-time Manchester United colleague.
“I don’t talk about some things because it’s a waste of time.”
