Dembélé saw the red card against Sevilla, served two penalty matches and his return was expected against Levante. But Valverde did not summon him
When the FC Barcelona lost to Neymar in summer of 2017, the club did not have any type of doubts about that Ousmane Dembélé was the ideal player to turn into his spare. His brilliant exert in the Rennes and in the Borussia Dortmund called the attention of the Barcelona technical office and the club accepted to pay 105 fixed millions more other 40 in variables.
They have happened two years and beak since and the 'mosquito' has left lights and shadows. The best news for the barcelonismo is that the lights has left them on the field, with numerous played that have showed his technical level, his speed and the fact innegable that it treats of a distinct footballer that it can contribute a lot so much in the present as in the future.
But neither they can evade the doubts that has left around his figure. The first arrive through his continuous injuries. In his first season like culé, was months in the dry dam and his little continuity did not allow him be an important player, in spite of giving brushstrokes of class. The past season, began like a shot, marking goals and being base, but went back to be victim of the injuries in the decisive stretch of the season.
His third campaign like culé has begun it the same that the two previous: leaving destellos of crack but losing too many parties by injury. Something that keeps on being a losa important for a player of the that at the beginning of season spoke wonders to level of professionalism and even some 'heavy weights' ensured that it had improved a lot in this appearance with regard to his two first campaigns.
And when all went well...
Once recovered, had good performances and even snatched him the place to Antoine Griezmann, but his expulsion against the Seville and the consistent sanction of two parties went back to change it everything. The French played 20 minutes in Champions League against the Slavia of Prague and, when all the world expected his return suspender belt in the Ciutat of València against the Raise, Valverde left him out of the announcement.
An absence surrounded of odd circumstances. The Txingurri ensured that it had left him went by technical decision, something inexplicable due to the fact that the French arrived to the party rested and came to play well before his sanction. But in France, L'Instrument desvelaba that the physical problems went back to be the cause of not being able to play. It was as it was, the 'case Dembélé' accumulate incógnitas and every time is more urgent that his talent dissipate them...
