Ousmane Dembélé carries some days training with the group, but summon him for the Barça-Napoli was too precipitated. He will travel to Lisbon if the Barça deletes to the Italians
The FC Barcelona revealed this noon the list of summoned, and in her was not Ousmane Dembélé. Something that neither surprised too much, and that does not want to say neither much less that the young French talent have stepped backwards in his process of recovery. Rather on the contrary: already it is recovered and does days that trains beside the rest of his mates, but the Barça does not want to force him before the account.
Summon him in front of the Naples would have been precipitated, and more still knowingly of the relapses that has suffered the footballer in previous occasions. So much the Barça as 'Dembouz' have learnt the lesson, and do not have haste. The attacker wants to help to his in Champions League, but will not be in front of the group partenopeo if no more advance, as long as the Barça delete to the Italians.
"We go it to us to carry to Lisbon so that it train with us and here will see if it can play"
"I thought in summoning to Dembélé, but alas has done very few trainings with the group and went to assume a too big risk. It did not be. What yes am sure is that we go it to us to carry to Lisbon so that it train with us and here will see if it can play", explained the Cantabrian trainer in press conference.
Setién Did upsetting in that Dembélé has worked well in the last days, but that of course still does not have the sufficient confidence in his physicist as to have minutes in front of a rival of the highest level, when it carries at all less than half year without stepping the terrains of game. "The boy has gone working and still is not with a big confidence. It is the normal that suecede in these occasions".
"We could have it carried so that it played some minutes, but have thought that the best was to expect to force more advance his out necessary. It has to follow training some days more and will go it evaluating day in day out", added the technician. It reigns the prudence in the club, and no descarta even that Dembélé do not play the next 14 August the quarter-finals of Champions League -if the Barça arrives- unless it was strictly necessary.
A last dose of patience for Dembélé
Setién, besides, has to his disposal to Leo Messi, Luis Suárez, Antoine Griezmann and Ansu Fati in the forward, without explaining the help of the attacker youngsters of the Barça B. Although Dembélé still is not available, to the team does not be missing him gunpowder in attack. Dembélé, in spite of his win crazy to go back to play, will have to have something more than just patience when it begins to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
