Bench anger: Alex Song beats Gerrard Pique during trophy parade (Photos)

share on:

Spending too much time on Barcelona’s bench may have given Alexander Song a new sense of aggression.

Photos show the former Arsenal midfielder landing a heavy slap on teammate Gerrard Pique, and show the duo being separated by other teammates to prevent a brawl.

At one point, Song is seen grabbing the former Manchester United centre arm and cocking his clenched fist as if readying himself to throw a punch.

A video released of the team’s celebrations show the players were all in high spirits, drinking alcohol and play-fighting on the bus – it could be these snaps just caught the pair engaging in boisterous fun.The parade was to honour Barcelona reclaiming their La Liga crown from Real Madrid, after mounting a 10-point lead with three games to play.

Although the scuffle went unnoticed on Monday afternoon, politicians in Catalonia have complained that drinking on the bus was setting a bad example to young fans who watched their title-winners parade the trophy.

Barcelona held their end-of-season awards dinner last night, and Song, who left Arsenal for Spain last summer did not appear in any of the pictures released. (DailyMail)

Too much time on the bench is obviously not good for one’s health!
