Funny post-match conversation between Lucas and Arbeloa

25 Feb 2018

As Real Madrid supporters exited the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu celebrating the club’s 4-0 victory over Alaves, Lucas Vazquez shared a joke with Alvaro Arbeloa.

TV cameras picked up the exchange, with the now-retired right-back working as part of the club’s matchday analysis team.

“Are you Michael Laudrup now or what?” he joked with the midfielder on RMTV.

Vazquez was quick to respond with quips of his own as he made clear his disbelief that the former defender was now working as a pundit.

“It’s incredible that you are now making a living on TV,” he joked.

Arbeloa wore the No.17 shirt at Real Madrid, a shirt which is now held by Vazquez, so this led to another jovial exchange, one initiated by the veteran.

“I see you’re doing very well,” he added.

“You’re in great form and are carrying the No.17, it’s in good hands.”

To which the Galician midfielder responded promptly.

“Never before has the No.17 given so many assists.”

To be exact, Lucas Vazquez has provided 12 assists so far this season in all competitions.
