Ilkay Gundogan met his Barcelona team-mates after the Clásico, and worked to explain his angry speech to the media and justified it as being because he felt sorry for the loss to Real Madrid.
The Germany international said after the Clásico that he was waiting for more anger and disappointment from the Barcelona players in the dressing room, and pointed out that he did not like the mentality of the Blaugrana players.
This caused a wave of controversy, and some press reports went to confirm that a number of Barça players were very angry when Gundogan talked about them in this way.
But according to "Cadena Ser", Gundogan in his meeting with Barcelona players in training assured them that his statements were only from excessive anger, and that he did not mean anyone in particular.
The reassuring news for Barcelona fans is that all the Catalan club's players understood what the German was talking about, and were impressed by the player's constant desire for victory.
Meanwhile, Gundogan's wife, Sara, denied talk of their family being unhappy in Barcelona and wanting to leave.
Sarah wrote on Instagram: "Everything that is rumoured is not true, we are really happy at Barcelona and we have the support of the club and the coaching staff, who said this fake news? "
