Bryan Zaragoza was the star of the game, as Barcelona played out a 2-2 draw with Granada on Sunday night.

Ronald Araujo came on in the first-half to replace the injured Jules Kounde.

One of Araujo’s task was to stop the rampaging Zaragoza, who was having a field day.

Zaragoza has now revealed a conversation he had with Ronald Araujo.

“During the match, Ronald Araujo told me ‘Stop running, you motherf*cker,” Zaragoza told reporters after the game.

Araujo indeed curtailed Zaragoza’s darting runs after he entered the field but the young Spaniard did strike the bar in what would’ve surely been the winning goal late in the game.

Barca themselves  were denied a winning goal themselves when VAR ruled out a Joao Felix goal for offside on Ferran Torres.
