Why Barcelona Are Angry With Dembele Over Injury

Barcelona officials have been left angered by the attitude of Ousmane Dembele following the news that the Frenchman would miss at least five weeks of action.

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that Dembele won’t play again for Barcelona until next month at least after he sustained a hamstring injury during the opening Spanish La Liga game of the season between Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona.

According to trusted Spanish newspaper Marca, club officials expected Ousmane Dembele to return to the Nou Camp for examinations on Saturday having felt discomfort immediately after the game against Athletic Bilbao.

Ousmane Dembele didn’t return to the club until Monday when it was revealed that he will be out for at least five weeks on the back of the diagnosis carried out on his injury.

The French World Cup winner battled with disciplinary issues last season and Barcelona officials fear that he has gone back to his old ways.

Ousmane Dembele has battled with several injury problems since his transfer from German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund to Barcelona.

Barcelona are currently without the likes of Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi at the moment thus leaving Antoine Griezmann as the only fit attacker in the team.
