Arsenal fans fume at Ronald Araujo as he completely takes out Gabriel Jesus with reckless tackle

Ronald Araujo clattered into Gabriel Jesus during Arsenal vs. Barcelona.

Arsenal fans are blasting Ronald Araujo for his reckless tackle on Gabriel Jesus during their friendly match.

The Gunners bounced back from their defeat to Manchester United by beating Barcelona 5-3 on Thursday.

Bukayo Saka, Kai Havertz, Leandro Trossard (x2) and Fabio Vieira, who scored a stunner, all got the score-sheet as the Premier League side secured a big win at the SoFi Stadium.

The victory, however, would have been marred if Gabriel Jesus had sustained a serious injury following the tackle made by Araujo.

Luckily for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal fans alike, the Brazilian forward escaped a serious injury, though the incident left Arsenal supporters fuming at the Uruguayan defender.

Araujo steamed into the Brazilian forward and completely took out his opponent with a very clumsy, high tackle.

Needless to say, Arsenal fans didn't like the 24-year-old's robust challenge on Jesus.

One Twitter user wrote: "He didn’t even give a foul let alone a card for that."

A second commented: "Should be a red card and 7 game suspension."

A third added: "Araujo should really stop this gimmick it’s only a friendly there’s a time and place for it he’s a weirdo."

A Manchester United fan referenced Lisandro Martinez, tweeting: "If he was 5'7 and Argentine we'd see everyone on the timeline calling him names."

Another said: "I'm glad we slapped them 5-3. This is not cool."

Araujo somehow avoided a card from the match referee, with Jesus fortunately unharmed.

You can understand Arsenal fans' frustrations over the tackle considering the nature of the game. It was just a friendly match, but Araujo clearly didn't get the memo.

Did he cross the line with his tackle on Jesus? Let us know what you think.
