One for the Future: Ousmane Dembele

After a much anticpiated move to his dream club FC Barcelona and replacing the boots of their star player Neymar jr. much was expected from the young French International Ousmane Dembele.

He suffered a ligament injury last season which saw him spending 4 months in the sidelines. After playing 3 macthes, Dembele suffered another injury which ruled him out for 1 more month.

It was a very tough moment for the young lad who missed training for his former club in order to boost his transfer to Blaugranas. This costed him his playing time till January and he didn't make much apperance in 2017-18 season.

But this season can be a major boost to his confidence as all the players and even the manager has shown immense confidence in Dembele.

He has blistering pace which can tear apart defences. His dribbling skills and control of the ball makes him one of the brighest prospects in the coming years for FC Barcelona.
With an ageing Messi, Dembele along with Coutinho will be given the responsibility to attack.

He has shown his worth in Sueprcopa Final when Dembele blasted a shot from 40 yards to seal Barcelona their first trophy this season. Dembele again proved to be the difference in Barcelona win against Valladoid yesterday in a very controversial match which Barca won 1:0 

FCBarcelona's big-money signing is finally starting to pay back his transfer fee and proving wrong his critics. Although he didn't make much apperance in World Cup, this is the time for Dembele to shine in Camp Nou.
