Rivaldo Reviewed the actuality of the FC Barcelona in an interview for 'Betfair'. The ex Barcelona player spoke, between other things, of the case Ousmane Dembélé. The club and Ronald Koeman wanted to that it abandoned the Barça, but the extreme preferred to remain. The Brazilian loaded with strength against him by this reason and left very clear that in no case has won go against the wishes of his club.

"Dembélé Continues lesionándose, arriving late to the trainings… would have to be much more responsible. If it fulfilled with his work, if it was playing regularly, would have all the right of the world to remain in the Barcelona, but is not the case. Dembélé Has not done at all to give back him to the club the enormous effort that did with his signing. We will see to see if it gives him arguments to Koeman to be important, but does not depend of the trainer or of the club, but of the commitment that want to have", commented.

The one of Recife continued with his argumentation and left clear that if it does not improve his performance will finish going without having done at all with the Barça. "The situation is complicated for the Barcelona, because they spent a lot in bringing it. But we have not seen still neither trace of what taught in the Borussia Dortmund. To me it seems me an extraordinary player with glorious conditions, but as it go on down this way, will finish his agreement without having showed at all of at all", affirmed.

On the other hand, Rivaldo criticised the management of the culés in this past market to the no fichar a '9' that substitute to Luis Suárez. Memphis Depay Was the favourite of Koeman, but the no gone out of Dembélé made impossible the arrival of the Dutch. "The Barcelona would have to have encouraged more for fichar a new forward that substituted to Suárez, especially because they have left to go out to a footballer that keeps on being extraordinary and that clearly had conditions to keep on being important", said, praising to the charrúa.

In this sense, the ex international 'canarinho' cleared that the Barça will miss the figure of a forward of level in the most complicated meetings of the season. "Sure that in a lot of parties of League to the Barcelona gives him to spare, because it follows having an equipazo very by in front of the rest of teams of the competition. But it goes him to throw a lot of of less in the Champions or in these very hard crashes against Real Madrid, Athletic, Seville…", signalled.

Rivaldo Spoke of the motion of censorship against Bartomeu

Besides, the ex barcelonista said that the motion of censorship against Josep Maria Bartomeu is being negative for the players, that need stability to develop his game. "If the solution is a change of president, that was what before. Because all this subject of the elections, the motion of censorship… all this does not help to the team to find tranquility. I know that it is not easy subject to resolve, but that what have to happen, that happen already same", declared.

Finally, the Brazilian praised the work of Koeman until the moment, but insisted in that the most important now is to resolve the problems that there is as a result of the motion of censorship. "With Koeman is clear that the Barcelona is improving and advancing. The problem that has is that still there are a lot of institutional problems that resolve. It is crucial to resolve them already same so that it leave to speak of the controversies and the focus centre in the quality of his staff or in the achievement of titles", concluded.
