Why did Iker Casillas ignore Alvaro Arbeloa on the Real Madrid bench at Celta Vigo?
Relations have reportedly been strained between Iker Casillas and Alvaro Arbeloa for some time, despite the fact the pair play together for Spain and Real Madrid.

As is often the way at Real Madrid during times of poor results, poor relations between team mates can emerge and so it proved during the 2-0 defeat at Celta Vigo on Sunday night which ended Los Blancos’ title challenge.
Arbeloa was substituted 11 minutes into the second half for Fabio Coentrao and whilst the rest of the Real Madrid bench acknowledged the Spain defender, Casillas ignored him completely…
