Xabi Alonso has been slammed by his former Spain and Real Madrid team-mate Álvaro Arbeloa following Monday's UEFA Champions League draw which paired defending Champions Real Madrid and Ligue 1 giants PSG.

Alonso was given the task of picking out the teams at the Champions League draw but he was not able to bring any luck for the Spanish teams.

The first tie out of the hat was Sevilla against Manchester United and then possibly the most exciting match-up of the round with Real Madrid facing Paris Saint-Germain.

Alonso's former Real teammate Alvaro Arbeloa took the chance to poke fun at Alonso in a couple of tweets where he first said: "oday draw for Champions. The Real Madrid can be calm, have a @XabiAlonso in Geneva. We are in good hands. ;) #UCLDraw."

Shortly after the draw, Arbeloa went on Twitter again saying : "We all know that @XabiAlonso is much better with his feet than with your hands. Not there is fear a.! for them PSG-RM."

The final Spanish team to be picked was Barcelona who will face Chelsea but one of Alonso's former club's Liverpool can be happy with the draw as they found themselves up against Porto.
