Gerard Pique and Alvaro Arbeloa involved in another Twitter spat

Gerard Pique and Alvaro Arbeloa
Gerard Pique and Alvaro Arbeloa have some social media history.

Stop us if you've heard this one before but Gerard Pique and Alvaro Arbeloa don't like each other very much. They may play for two rivals, Barcelona and Real Madrid, but their animosity runs deeper and goes back to 2013 at least after Real Madrid had beaten Elche with a 94th-minute penalty.

Pique then referred to Arbeloa as "a cone" in December, while drew a fiery response from Arbeloa in March.

And now they are at it again.

Arbeloa kicked things off after Barcelona's shock 1-0 defeat to Real Sociedad with a tweet that made reference to Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres' red card in the Champions League in midweek: "How difficult it is to win against 11 men! Fantastic game by [Asier Illaramendi] and huge [Esteban Granero], promise fulfilled! ;) Congratulations Pirata!"

Pique responded in the mixed zone saying: "A player who has started once in 32 games doesn't deserve a response. I'll tell my friends to tell me when I'm not a protagonist, either on the pitch or off it."

But Arbeloa continued, making reference to the film (translated as 'Concussion' in English) tweeted by Pique after Madrid's defeat to Wolfsburg in midweek: "Well he's right. What a film. The truth hurts."

Pique hit back, pointing out a spelling error: "Peliculón (great movie) has an accent. A hug."

To which Arbeloa, again referring to Torres' red, replied: "So does expulsión (sending off). You are right again. A hug back phenomenon."

Grow up lads.
