Barcelona ace Ronald Araujo has revealed he was left angered by Manchester United winger Alejandro Garnacho's Instagram jibe the Argentine recently aimed at the Catalan giants.
The two teams faced off against each other in the Europa League knockout play-off round earlier this month, with Manchester United prevailing 4-3 on aggregate.
After the game, Garnacho, who played just 31 minutes over the course of the two legs, took to Instagram to upload a photo of him doing Barcelona star Pedri's celebration, with the post captioned: "The big team goes through."

And in a recent interview, Araujo has revealed that while he would not bring up Garnacho's comments if the two faced off against each other again, the Uruguayan reckons the teenage winger should act more "humbly."
"Yes [he was bothered by the post]. Everyone is as they are, but at that time, it should not have been possible to post something like that," Araujo told Infobae.
"I respect everyone and I feel that humility should be ahead of everything. Everyone expresses themselves as they want, but I prefer to have a lower profile and then show what I do on the pitch.
"This is football, he is very young and there is still a long way to go. You have to proceed calmly and humbly."

And Garnacho's comments also attracted the ire of Argentine coach Nestor 'Pipo' Gorosito, who manages Primera Division side Colon.
"You have to show him what is good and bad," Gorosito told Sport.
"He's going to make mistakes because he’s 18 years old and that’s when he has to do it, it’s part of life. If he's one of my children, I hit him with an open hand on the neck. That’s the way it is."
