Ronald Koeman opened him the door of exit to Ousmane Dembélé after hardly have he in the start of season. There is something of the Frenchman that does not convince him
Ronald Koeman had very clear that the FC Barcelona needed two reinforcements for apuntalar his staff: a central defence (Eric García, of the Manchester City) and a leading centre (Memphis Depay, of the Olympique of Lyon). But the signings went conditioned to that the Barcelona club freed mass salarial to give fit to the new incorporations, something that required that there was some sacrificed important.
This sacrificed was Ousmane Dembélé, although the French extreme finally refused to go to the Manchester United to remain in the FC Barcelona. Of all the players of the staff, Ronald Koeman decided that the more prescindible was the French, to the that already had opened the door from the room of press -remembering him the hard competition in his place- and from the field, doing without he in the parties against the Celtic of Vigo and the Seville.
The case of the 'mosquito' is really odd especially by the important that was this player for Ernesto Valverde, that planted it like titling when it was not lesionado, and for Quique Setién, that before his last injury was excited with his presence. Nevertheless, Ronald Koeman, without hardly see in action to the international French, invited him to go out and planted him like one of the last options for the forward.
It is complicated to know the reasons by which Ronald Koeman has taken so much distance with Ousmane Dembélé, but his words in the room of press can give some tracks. The Dutch ensured that it did not give him minutes against the Celtic of Vigo because, being one less, needed players that defended better like Pedri or Francisco Trincao. Against the Seville, ensured that it wanted to more control, something that neither contributes too much the extreme Frenchman.
But the reality is that in a party equalised like the one of the Seville needed to a player that broke with the predictable and, for this, Ronald Koeman did not have a more ideal option that the one of Ousmane Dembélé but went back to evade his presence. In spite of being a fast player, with desborde, smell of goal and capacity to open the field, the Dutch preferred to follow with his men of confidence. The result, in sight: it did not achieve to improve to the team neither carry the three points.
Why Dembélé does not fit him to Koeman?
They can have several factors by which Ronald Koeman hardly has Ousmane Dembélé. Futbolísticamente, the French contributes less defensive work that Antoine Griezmann and Francisco Trincao, in addition to being a player that lives more near of the area and that does not help to the double pivote as much as can do it his compatriot or the Portuguese. Besides, it is of which does the war by his account and has less association of team, something that is essential for the technician culé.
On the other hand, Ousmane Dembélé went back to arrive 15 minutes late to a training, something that could have angered to Ronald Koeman, that already was connoisseur of the problems of discipline of the French. Now that has closed the market and that is not necessary that go so that it arrive another player, it will be necessary to see if the trainer culé resigna and uses more to a footballer that could give him a lot to the team.
