Lionel Messi reportedly calls Alvaro Arbeloa "stupid" when confronting him in a car park following Barcelona's draw with Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi reportedly launched a tirade of abuse at Real Madrid right-back Alvaro Arbeloa following his side's Copa del Rey draw with their fierce rivals.

The 25-year-old, who won the elusive Ballon d'Or trophy for a record fourth time last month, was part of the side that clinched a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu in the first leg of the semi-final on Wednesday.

It is believed that the Argentina international called Arbeloa "stupid" in a confrontation in the car park at the ground following the clash, according to Marca.

Reports have claimed that Messi was pulled away from the scene and taken back onto Barcelona's team bus.
