This week, there was controversy over FC Barcelona in the dressing room. Ilkay Gundogan spoke after the game against PSG in the Champions League and gave his opinion of the match. Gundogan said, "Everything was in our hands, and we just gave it away," which was a reference to the red card Araujo received. The card impacted the game as Barcelona was leading 1-0 against PSG but after Araujo was sent off, PSG turned it around and won 4-1.

Ronald Araujo was asked about his opinion on Gundogan's word and he said, "I’d rather keep for myself what I really think. I have my own codes and values that I think you need to respect." This made many football fans assume that there was tension between Araujo and Gundogan after these words from the Uruguayan defender and now reports suggest the two are fine with each other in the dressing room.

They have talked about the exchange of statements, and Gundogan made it clear that he did not want to point out Araujo and only explained the play [in which the red card was shown] because he was asked about it.
