Barcelona teammates Ilkay Gundogan and Ronald Araujo schedule meeting to address controversy

Following Barcelona's exit from the Champions League on Tuesday at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain, veteran midfielder Ilkay Gundogan appeared to target teammate Ronald Araujo for his sending off, which marked a massive turning point in the second leg at the Estadio Olympique. .

Gundogan believes Araujo “should have known better” than to drop Bradley Barkola, and the Uruguayan issued his response to the German on Thursday, which appeared to confirm there was a rift between the pair.

According to Sport, Gundogan was surprised by the reaction to his statements. He does not understand the uproar that has been raised, as he believes that he did not blame anyone, least of all Araujo, for Barcelona's exit from the Champions League.

However, the report suggests that Gundogan intends to meet Araujo before Friday's training session, as they attempt to clear the air ahead of El Clasico this weekend. Barcelona will want to put this into effect as soon as possible, so everyone can move on.
