Arbeloa takes to Twitter after Real Madrid win Champions League

Alvaro Arbeloa has returned to social media site, Twitter following his side's dramatic late night win in the Champions League final. The passionate Madrid fan has made some headlines over recent months with his tweets and he took little time to ignite the site once again but with a fan rousing shout-out. He has already played his last game for the club and although was not part of the playing staff for the final, he made sure he was part of the celebrations (he was first to jump on Cristiano's back after the winning penalty) and will surely keep himself in the news for a while yet.

The defender's tweet, just after 01:00 Spanish time included a picture of the famous "big ears" trophy adorned with the t-shirt that he had been seen wearing in the post-match celebrations. The message along with it read "HALA MADRID¡ (sons of bitches)," a phrase that is now part of the Bernabeu faithful's tradition.

Arbeloa, 33, has had a pretty successful medal haul while at the club including a LaLiga title, two Copas del Rey, the Spanish Supercup, two Champions Leagues, one World Club Cup and one European Super Cup.
