Reports: Dembele Angers Barca Boss
Reports: Ousmane Dembele Angers FC Barcelona Boss
It is has been reported that new signing Ousmane Dembele has angered FC Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde ahead of the Catalan club's La Liga match this weekend.
According to Don Balon, the Frenchman has frustrated his new manager because he is not physically ready to start against Espanyol on Saturday night.
It has been claimed that Dembele has been training alone at times this week in order to get his fitness levels up.
It is believed the club's board want to see the 20-year-old in the starting XI against Espanyol, especially as he is the most expensive signing in the Catalan giants' history.
Despite the board's wishes, Valverde apparently believes that Dembele might only be ready for the bench this weekend, something that is said to have annoyed him.
The winger signed for Barca from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of about €105 million (R1.65 billion), making him the second costliest signing ever.
