Barcelona fans are loving a video of Ronald Araujo bullying Anthony Martial off the ball during their big win over Sevilla last weekend.
Araujo starred for the Catalan giants as they picked up three points to move to second in La Liga.
The Uruguayan defender completely nullified the threat of Martial, emphatically winning his duel in an impressive moment.
In the second half, with the game goalless – the Manchester United loanee was played in and attempted to race through on goal.
But Araujo had other ideas, brilliantly stopping the Frenchman in his tracks – wrestling the ball of him, sending him to the floor.
The 23-year-old winning his 1-1 with Martial sent social media wild.
One Twitter user wrote: “Cheat code he is.”
A second tweeted: “Araujo bullied Martial.”
A third joked: “Araujo sending Martial back to Manchester United.”
Araujo has been one of Barca’s standout players this campaign, having made 23 league appearances this season.
He’s been the subject of intense transfer speculation, with his contract set to expire in 2023.
Araujo is seen as a vital part of Xavi’s team, but his future remains uncertain.
Man United and Chelsea, among others, are thought to be interested in snapping him up.
Barca, though, want to hold onto his defensive services – but they’ll need to pay up if they want to keep him beyond next summer.
