Ilkay Gundogan's wife defends him and makes pointed comment about his 'Treble mentality' after Barcelona star's brutal criticism left the dressing room split in wake of Champions League exit to PSG

Ilkay Gundogan's wife has added fuel to the fire of Barcelona's dressing room split after his brutal criticism of team-mates following their Champions League exit.

The Catalan giants crashed out of the Champions League when they lost 4-1 to Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of their quarter-final clash on Tuesday night.

Afterwards, German midfielder Gundogan refused to hold back in a television interview as he criticised Ronald Araujo for getting himself sent off and Joao Cancelo for conceding a penalty.

Gundogan was also infuriated by the nature of Vitinha's goal to out PSG 2-1 ahead on the night, with Robert Lewandowski one of those who didn't get tight enough.
