Fernando Torres SENT OFF for shoving former Liverpool team mate Alvaro Arbeloa

Fernando Torres was shown a red card for threatening his former Liverpool team-mate Alvaro Arbeloa during an U19s game, stunning video has revealed.

The pair spent two-and-a-half years together at Anfield under Spanish boss Rafael Benitez.

But things got heated between them on Sunday afternoon when they squared up on the touchline.

Both are managers at youth level, with Torres’ Atletico Madrid facing rivals Real Madrid’s U19 side, managed by Arbeloa.

And as shown by footage online, Torres, 39, was sent off for confronting and shoving his compatriot.

After a flare-up on the pitch, former defender Arbeloa approached the iconic former striker, clearly angry and gesticulating.

Torres, who has bulked up considerably since his playing days, then gave the 40-year-old a shove, saying ‘I’ll blow your head off’.

Arbeloa then responded: ‘Start whenever you want.’

The referee showed Arbeloa a yellow for his actions, before giving Torres his marching orders, to the delight of the home Real crowd.

Footage then shows several furious Atletico players and coaches storm onto the pitch to confront the official.

The game finished 2-2 after extra time, 4-2 to Los Blancos on aggregate, sending Arbeloa and Co through to the Youth Cup semi-final against Las Palmas.
