The Uruguayan centre-back is showing himself to be a Barça defender for many seasons to come
Name: Ronald Federico Araujo Da Silva
Date and place of birth: 07/03/1999 (Rivera, Uruguay)
Arrival at Barça: On August 29, 2018 he signed for Barça B, from Boston River in Montevideo. In the 2020/21 season he was promoted to Barça's first team.
First-team debut: On October 6, 2019, in a league match at the Camp Nou against Sevilla. 73 minutes into the game, he had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury.
Ronald Araujo continues to grow with the first team. He made his debut last season and ended up playing six matches, but it was in the 2020/21 season, with a promotion to the first team, that he began to find himself in Koeman's lineups more often.
Araujo stands out for his strength, but also for his fair play. A confident player, with the character of a leader despite his youth.
