Guti takes aim at Piqué for his disparaging remarks about Arbeloa

The Barcelona-despising ex-Real Madrid man has taken aim at the Catalan defender for his "off-the-field antics" as well as the unprofessional comments he made about Arbeloa on Twitter.

The Twitter War being waged between Gerard Piqué and Álvaro Arbeloa following Barcelona’s recent defeat at Anoeta took another turn on Monday night. After joining in on the post-match Barça ribbing on social media, dead-hard madridista Guti backed up his actions on the Spanish panel show 'El Chiringuito de Jugones', where he also came out in defence of the Real Madrid right back at the centre of the tit-for-tat slagging match. “You’re the funniest man on the planet whenever Madrid lose but when Barça slip up, what, no one can tweet about it? You have to be a man and accept those tweets when you’re beaten. He’s gone too far too many times. The whole Piqué thing is outrageous. I’ve never seen another active Madrid or Barça player disrespect a fellow professional like he has. I’ve had enough of Piqué’s behaviour. He can’t get away with talking about Arbeloa the way he has. Barcelona should make an example of him”.

The one-time Galactico concluded by saying, “It’s one thing for him to be happy that Madrid lose – I feel the same way when Barcelona lose – but it’s another thing to slag off a fellow professional. He hasn’t learned anything from Xavi and Puyol. His personality is beginning to overshadow his footballing ability. How long have we been talking about Piqué’s off-the-field antics? He has been grabbing the headlines all year because of his extracurricular activities…”.
