A struggle inside the Barcelona dressing room.  Lewandowski picked one side

This is not how FC Barcelona players imagined this year's Champions League to end. After the first quarter-final, they were 3-2 ahead on aggregate against Paris Saint-Germain and were in a better position heading into the second leg at home. It started well, with Rafinha scoring in the 13th minute. However, after less than half an hour of play, the hosts were down to 10 men. Ronald Araujo committed an unnecessary foul outside his team's penalty area, and in the end Barcelona lost 1-4. In the interview after the match, Ilkay Gundogan blamed his colleague.

A clash between Gundogan and Araujo. The German criticized his colleague in an interview

The German commented on his friend's behavior in front of the cameras and did not hide his nervousness. – In important moments like these you have to make sure you get the ball, and if not you have to retreat. The ball was too far away. I don't know if he was able to reach it. It's better to give up a goal, because with a red card and playing less than a goal… it kills your game Gundogan said.

Araujo did not leave these words unanswered. However, the FC Barcelona defender was more reserved in his words, although he did give his friend a small pin. – inI prefer to keep to myself what I think about Gundogan's statements. He said: I have principles and values ​​that I must follow.

Robert Lewandowski has taken sides in the Araujo-Guendogan conflict

Robert Lewandowski was asked about the dispute between his teammates in the locker room during an interview with Eleven Sports.

I have the impression that the media is often more interested in such topics than we are. But I think there was nothing wrong with Ilkay's statement, nor was there anything that attacked the other person personally. (…) We are men. If there was something, it would probably have been explained, but there is no topic in the locker room at the moment

~ said the FC Barcelona striker.

We can conclude from this statement that The Pole claims that the German simply told the truth and did not intend to insult Araujo, Whether it would hurt him, and just explained in honest words what he thought in this situation. It is not clear whether Lewandowski shares the opinion of his colleague from the time of Borussia Dortmund, however Obviously he came to his defense.
