Barcelona fans who have had enough of Ousmane Dembele’s continuous injury woos took to popular social media platform, Twitter to register their disappointment at the player’s unending injuries since he joined the club in 2017.
Dembele who recently came back from few week injury went back on another injury yesterday night in a Champions League match against German side and his former club, Borussia Dortmund at the Camp Nou which saw him in tears as he left the field. The match ending 3 – 1 in favor of the home team.
The 22-year-old picked up the injury in less than 30 minutes of play into the match and was replaced by fellow countryman, Antoinne Griezzman who went to score the last goal of the game. The news of the injury did not seem to go down well with many Barcelona fans who after the match took to Twitter to call for his sale.
According to statistics, Dembele missed out on the first five games of this season as a result of ankle injury and reports have it that his new injury might keep him on the sidelines for three weeks.
After the game against Dortmund, Barcelona striker, Luis Suarez also spoke to the press regarding Dembele’s injuries and stated that “the club’s doctors as a matter of urgency should address the fitness of players” because ideally, a player should not go on injuries this often.
The injury blow on Dembele means that the Frenchman will certainly not play this weekend against rivals, Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou but there are high possibilities that he must have been back before the El-Classico against Real Madrid on December 18.
Dembele has suffered thigh injuries on three different occasions in 2019 alone and has only started five games this season, which makes one to ponder if the 105m Euros spent on signing him from Borrussai Dortmund is not a waste?.
The former Rennes of France winger signed his first professional contract for Rennes towards the end of 2014 and by 2016, he joined Dortmund, where he scored 12 goals and gave 20 assists in his first season.
This staggering stats caught the attention of Barcelona and with the controversial departure of Neymar and the huge profit made from his sale, Barca went all in for Dembele as a replacement for Neymar, not minding how outrageously expensive he was.
Since Dembele joined Barcelona, it has been one injury problem or the other and can hardly go 15 games without an injury which has not made him leaved up to expectations and some fans are of the believe that the medical crew are the main problem and not the player alone.
With the continuous injuries on Dembele and his unimpressive match displays for Barcelona, is it safe to say that Dembele is a flop and should be sold or he should be given some more time to prove his worth?
With Dembele out on injury, many Barcelona fans have come out to heavily criticize the player on Twitter and below are some of the reactions we captured in the process;
