Dembélé permanent patient!
Ousmane Dembélé (22) suffered a right thigh muscle injury at Barça's Champions League victory (3-1) against his former club Borussia Dortmund. Also in this case! After only 26 minutes, the Frenchman suddenly sat on the field of the Dortmunder on the lawn, he had already removed both shoes. He understood immediately: he cannot continue.
The Frenchman had to leave the field after a duel with Raphaël Guerreiro (25), fighting with tears. BVB fans considered him with insults, whistling in front of him when he was on the ball. Since his unspeakable strike started at BVB in Barça in the summer of 2017, the trailer is finished.
In Barcelona, constant injuries postpone him again and again. This season, Dembélé has only completed nine games (1 goal), missing at the start of the season due to a thigh injury. There was also a red block (2 games). Already in a debut season for the Catalans, he forced his thigh to pause for a month. At that time he only reached 17 league games.
How long it should pause this time and how severe the injury is still not clear. The dribbling artist is still under investigation, said FC Barcelona on Thursday.
"Dembélé is a problem for Barça", commented the "Sport" newspaper. However, coach Ernesto Valverde (55) took the protection of the striker: "It is a pity, because he was fine and trained well," he said after the victory.
Dembélé is very sad about the new wounds: "We will try to take care of him", says Valverde.
