The Real Madrid player confirmed that he was right behind Aitor Karanka when Messi launched that attack on him. He was speaking at the press conference ahead of Real Madrid's game against Granada. He also said Messi lay in wait for about an hour and a half in the parking lot of the Bernabeu to confront Arbeloa in front of his pregnant wife. Callejon expressed disappointment that his team mate had to endure that sort of treatment in front of his wife. He said its understable for a player to say something in the heat of the moment during a game but to say what the Argentine said off the pitch was unacceptable, and there was no comparison to Mourinho 's infamous parking lot incident.
There was widespread condemnation when Mourihno waited in the parking lot after a clasico but the response has been muted and largely ignored this time.
Messi's teammate Jordi Alba was asked about the incident and he claimed that he knew nothing about it.
In a related incident it seems the Argentine 's antics started during the game. In a video, on the Marca's site, he is seen getting to an argument with someone on the Real Madrid bench and spitting in that direction minutes later.
