FC Barcelona has reportedly given Les Blue’s winger Ousmane Dembele an ultimatum, as the following couple of days will be a crucial moment in understanding whether the former BVB winger has a future with the club.
The 21-year old is Ernesto Valverde‘s crucial issue as of now, as the immature attitude of the French winger keeps on baffling Barca, who will never again agree to the winger’s ‘Antics‘. As reported by ‘Sport, if Barcelona doesn’t see any major changes in Dembele, the Catalan giants will have no choice than to listen to offers.
There’s no uncertainty about his footballing potential. in spite of the fans’ steady objection, Valverde knows the player’s quality on the field. For Dembele to live to his talent, he needs time and he needs to adjust. Despite joining Barcelona over a year ago, Dembele is yet to fully integrate into the changing room and has gained little ground with the dialect.
Valverde has proved his trust and confidence in Dembele by giving him time on the field, however, the player’s performance are yet to secure him a place in the Blaugrana lineup. rather Arthur Melo has come into the fold by a change in the team new system and Dembele is currently forced to start from the bench.
The issue that is finally too much to bear was Dembele’s nonappearance from a training session, communicate with the club an hour and a half later. he was left
out against Real Betis – a strict punishment that could proceed if he doesn’t change.
The €105million signing still has the backing of team-mate Suarez, but the Uruguay forward, preparing to face Dembele’s France, acknowledges the Les Blue winger must make some changes.
“It’s not that [Dembele] has not adapted to the dressing room – the relationship he has with his team-mates is very good,” Suarez told a news conference. “He is happy.
“But as some of my team-mates have said, and Ousmane himself knows, being a footballer is a privilege. I think maybe he should focus more on his football and be more responsible.
“He is very young and can take inspiration from the exemplary professionalism in the Barcelona dressing room. He deserves to be there and to triumph with Barca.”
Barca general manager Pep Segura is confident Dembele will get there in time, though, insisting it is not easy to adapt to life at Camp Nou.
“Understanding the demands that Barca has of all players is not easy,” Segura told La Vanguardia. “It is brutally difficult and the club must help the player.
“Then there is the pressure to play here, with the magnitude of the club. It is logical that sometimes a player without too much experience has difficulty understanding all of that. It is not that he is not happy, it is that he has the doubts of a young player.
“Dembele has always had his talent, which is immense, and now he has to use it for the team. I can say that both the club and the player are convinced 100 per cent that he will do that.”
