The talent showed by the central Uruguayan, Ronald Araujo, does not leave to be impressive and to generate surprise and do that the youngster win fulfilled. In fact, his pair in the Catalan square, Gerard Hammered, have the devoted a lot of praises during an interview and him auguró a good future with the culés

"It is very young, has the head very well, is a portento, goes well by up, has good handle of balloon. It is not luck (…) During his go through Second B with the filial matured, but is that in the first team has taken advantage of the opportunity (…) Araujo is a centralazo. Here there is defence for ten or fifteen years", are some of the fulfilled that the iconic defender of the Barcelona devoted him to the Uruguayan in an interview given to the 'streamer' Ibai Flat.

Praises to other young players

I hammered no only it devoted praises to Araujo, but to the rest of the youngest players of the Barcelona, by what even affirmed that there is "a very promising future for the Barça, with the Pedri, Riqui Puig and Ansu Fati". Of this last, the one who now is lesionado, said that his arrival to the first team "was resembled the one of Araujo, in his case being even more young that Araujo". On the forward of 18 years, recognised that "has a lot of goal, is very fast and with talent, has it everything also to be a lot of years in the Barça".

On his future

In front of the question on if ficharía by another team to have the opportunity, the Spanish descartó totally this stage reiterating that it will follow playing in the Barça until it withdraw like footballer. "I will withdraw me in the Barça. This always have said it. Game to the football because I am representing to the Barça. I do not see me in another team. It would not have motivation, would be a drama"

Also it mentioned to be improving in the recovery of his injury that ails him from November. "I am better of what expected me. I need to be several hours running, turning and touching the ball. I took the decision to take a method of conservation, and seems that it is working very well", said.

In fact, even it arrived to affirm that once it withdraw could launch like candidate to some eventual presidential elections of the Barcelona. However, I Hammered it admitted that it still does not have a decision taken on what will do from this point. "Now the same the only that attempt is to learn. I have learnt good and bad things of Bartomeu, Rosell, Laporta. I try to learn of presidents of other clubs. Florentino is doing a very good management like president. Learn of all they because each one can give you a puto of sight. No what go to do inside some years".

The numbers of Araujo

During the duel against the Athletic, Araujo had a total of 86% of tarpaulin in the passes that made, 3/5 aerial duels livestocks, two intercepciones, two shots blocked and neither a fault committed. As if these figures did not go already impressive, the Uruguayan transmits that in the one against one is almost impossible to trick in the field and that when it goes to the crash his superiority is overwhelming.

The quality of the football that has showed in each appointment with the team has done that no only the surroundings culé endorse and elogie to the Uruguayan defender, but to international level already begins to arrive him increasingly recognition. No only this, of the five big Leagues that exist in Europe he is the only defence to the that have not surpassed in any occasion. If it does not arrive to suffer injuries along his career, can turn into one of the best head offices.
