Iker Casillas Blanked By Real Madrid Teammate Alvaro Arbeloa (Vine)

Which Real Player Blanked Casillas?

Iker Casillas is one Real Madrid player who does not come off well in Diego Torres' José Mourinho exposé and there was a potentially telling exchange, or lack of an exchange, between the goalkeeper and Alvaro Arbeloa on Tuesday night.

Ahead of the Supercopa first leg with Atlético Madrid, substitute Arbeloa warmly wished Dani Carvajal, Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Pepe luck but completely blanked Casillas.

Hilariously, the cameraman caught not just Arbeloa's ignorance but the forlorn and embarrassed expression etched on Casillas' face.

It apparently stems, of course, from a social media row. Earlier this summer, Casillas liked an Instagram picture which criticised former colleague Diego LĂłpez, the man who dislodged him 18 months ago, and referred to Arbeloa as "a cone".

López joined AC Milan earlier this month but Arbeloa is still at the Bernabéu and hit back - on social media, of course. The full-back retweeted a link to a book which described Casillas as a "tumour on Real Madrid".

Arbeloa apologised for that error but relations between him and Casillas still seem to be frosty. Real and Atlético drew 1-1.
