Leave Arbeloa Really Painful - Jose Antonio 'Toni' Grande, one of the Spanish national team coaching staff, admitted to strike Alvaro Arbeloa from the World Cup squad is a painful decision.
Real Madrid defender is not in the list of 30 players who become candidates for the core team La Roja in Brazil next. He is much missed in this season, due to injuries he suffered.
"Arbeloa has given so much to this team, very painful to leave him. He was injured and the situation is not so good for him," said Grande Marca reported.
"Of course, we took the decision only because of an injury he experienced, not because of anything else," he concluded.
Arbeloa this season played 21 times for Madrid in La Liga and the Champions League, and scored one goal.
