Barcelona legend reveals how their record signing can succeed at the club

Barcelona’s summer signing Ousmane Dembele has started to flourish at the club and Barcelona legend, Carlos Puyol has an advice for the youngster.

Ousmane Dembele had a difficult start to his life at Barcelona. The Frenchman was sidelined for the first half of the season due to an injury immediately after his big money move to the Catalan club. Upon his comeback, the youngster looked out of place in his first few games.




The things soon started to change though, as everyone at Barcelona was eager for the Frenchman to feel at home. Club officials assigned a special exercise and diet routine for the player. On the field, Lionel Messi himself took Dembele under his wings and the €105m signing soon started to show his worth.

Puyol Supports Dembele:

Barcelona legends have also shown their support for Dembele. The recent comments by former captain Carlos Puyol will be nothing less than confidence boost for the winger. The legendary defender advised Dembele to forget about the price tag and play his natural game.

“I think he is a great player. But he was signed for big money and is under pressure of having cost a lot of money. He has to forget about that and he has to focus exclusively on improving and improving.” said Puyol.

“He started at Dortmund, now he is at Barcelona and he has yet to get used to it. He has the qualities, but he must remain calm, learn from his colleagues and concentrate on his performance.”

The 20-year old has now settled down at the club and despite being linked with a move away, has also scored his first goal in an all-important game against Chelsea in the Champions League. The winger also has 4 assists to his name in the league.

Author’s Take:

Ousmane Dembele is a gifted player and he has shown it in his recent games. Messi has really helped the player to fit into Barcelona’s game plan. And the support from someone like Puyol will go a long way into boosting Dembele’s confidence. He might just be the future of Barcelona.
