As you may remember, Ousmane Dembele got an ankle injury in the match against Leganes on January 20. As a result, the French winger needs a few weeks to return to the field.
Barca’s coach makes an emotional statement about the 22-years-old Dembele. Setien says that he is eager to see the winger on the pitch again.
Since 2017, when Ousmane Dembele joined Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund, the young winger consistently fights against his different injuries. As a result, he had only nine appearances this season.
We may suppose that Dembele will return to training with the team in several weeks. About that, Quique Setien states that “it brings him to tears,” and he must be sincere.
How Barca gets their fame back
Maybe you have already noticed that Barca is no longer in their old shape. They are struggling too much lately. Of course, the absence of such essential players like Dembele and Suarez profoundly impacts on the overall quality of their play. Without these two, Barcelona is absolutely on Messi’s shoulders.
Barca’s coach has already noticed that as well and looks forward to seeing his powerful team reunited again.
Unfortunately, Luis Suarez is likely to be out for the rest of the season as the striker is undergoing after his knee surgery. Let me remind you that the Uruguayan Forward is the third top-scorer of La Liga’s current season with 11 goals.
Lionel Messi definitely is their Savior, but he cannot handle all eleven players’ job.
Apparently, Barca’s coach is hopeful about Ousmane Dembele as the winger has a significant impact alongside Messi and other teammates. Setien believes that the young French Winger has space to improve things on.
