Alvaro Arbeloa and Gerard Pique aren’t the best of friends and probably never will be.
Pique has been all over Periscope in recent weeks but a session with Arbeloa seemed out of the question until now.

In an interview with Cadena Cope - with the quotes translated by Catalan newspaper Sport - Arbeloa admitted that Pique wasn’t his friend.
On being referred to be his derogatory nickname ‘The Cone’ by his fellow Spain international - as in a training ground cone - Arbeloa said: “If Pique was my friend and he called me a cone, it would hurt me, but it came from Pique."
Easier to be friends with Pique or win Ballon d'Or?
He was then asked whether it would be easier to heal his relationship with Pique or win the Ballon d’Or.
“It’s much easier to repair my relationship with Pique,” the 33-year-old full-back continued. “For me to win the Ballon d’Or, all the other players would have to die! If we win La Undecima (an eleven European Cup), I’ll do a Periscope with Pique."
Real Madrid could win the Champions League
Arbeloa might regret making that promise come the end of the season.
Los Blancos were handed a favourable quarter-final draw - they play Wolfsburg in the next round, with the first leg taking place next week - and with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in their ranks, have a decent chance of winning the competition.
Whether Pique would be willing to do a Periscope session with Arbeloa is another matter completely, although he did recently admit that he would record an online video with Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos.
Arbeloa doesn't watch Spain anymore
Arbeloa also revealed in his international that he doesn’t watch the Spanish national team anymore - maybe because Pique is still a key member of the squad, who knows.
"It hurt me not to go to Brazil but now I'm very happy not to go with the national team,” he added. “I don't watch Spain games. I'll watch the Euros, but in the World Cup I only watched the first half against Chile."
Can bridges be rebuilt between Arbeloa and Pique?
The feud between Pique and Arbeloa has been going on for far too long now and too much time may have passed for bridges to be rebuilt.
However, if Real Madrid lift the European Cup at the San Siro on May 28, let’s hope Arbeloa sticks by his word.
