Although it is Dembélé’s first muscle injury of the season, It is already the ninth since he arrived at the club in 2017. In fact, in 2019/2020 physical problems took him away from the courts and he only played nine games in the entire campaign. Already recovered, this season the French little by little began to show the best of his game, but again the physique put a pause on him.

Barcelona gather hope as Real Madrid sink

Barcelona were together and brilliant as they beat Ferencvaros 3-0 and gave a new does of hope to Cules. With an unexpected attacking trident – Griezmann, Braithwaite and Dembele – they shone, especially in the first half, and each scored in Koeman’s fifth consecutive UCL victory. The team are close to Louis van Gaal’s record in 2002-03, 18 points from 18. They have one game left, against Juventus.

Beyond the stats, the feelings are good. Without Leo Messi, Barcelona put on a show. Koeman’s work, technical, tactical, physical and psychological, is starting to bear fruit.

This contrasts with the drama in the Spanish capital, as Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid struggle. Los Blancos are at risk of elimination if they don’t beat Gladbach in their final group game. This Madrid looks to be in free fall. With Zidane incapable of finding answers and Florentino Perez ready to sack his star man – who brought three consecutive UCLs in his first era. Pochettino, as usual, and Raul, are the candidates to replace him. But as Guardiola said, you can’t never take Madrid for dead… even though they are practically buried.

No one should stay where they are not happy. If forced to do so, the most probable and logical thing is that this annoyance grows and becomes a much heavier burden to carry. The best player in the world was forced to continue on pain of paying the exorbitant termination clause, in the only place in the world where he always wanted to be, but which due to various circumstances became an unbearable reality. When Messi sent the famous burofax, the link that seemed indestructible between him and Fútbol Club Barcelona was already broken, driven by a chain of errors from the recently departed president of the club, Josep Bartomeu, and his court in the last years of his mandate. Few teams depend on a player so that things go well or badly, and the culé is one of them.

The arrival of Ronald Koeman did not seem and has not been enough fuel to propel the ship and the few reinforcements hired much less, despite the willingness of Setién’s successor to surround the flea.

It is incredible to see the league table of positions and to find Barça closer to relegation than to the lead, it seems like a horror story. His defense, increasingly vulnerable, is the sad protagonist of the season and his great victim is the best goalkeeper on the planet, Ter Stegen. Its containment zone no longer resists, like a cracked dam in the rainy season. Sergio Busquets is going through his most discreet form and has run out of squires. De Jong is not consolidated and Pjanic has not been a solution. Antoine Griezmann is still a stranger, who does not even give him to be a starter in Kiev, Coutinho is the king of intermittency, Dembelé is a quite particular case, Ansu Fati has been injured, and let’s add Piqué, one of the references that this year he no longer plays. The Pedri and Puig promises are still green and have finished setting up a light reality. Lio is not alone, but he is surrounded by the faded reflections of soldiers who are no longer so critical in helping him achieve amazing victories, just a few that will only serve to raise the levels of nostalgia. The regularity to sustain the usual struggle in Spain has not yet appeared. An uncertain local panorama that would not endure what has not yet been broken, his participation in the Champions League that has so far been his only incentive. He qualified for the second phase without problem after yesterday’s win in Ukraine, which is not enough yet to bet blindly that he will reach the semifinals, to tell the truth.

Historically, Barça has had bumps after big cycles, the most recent after Johan Cruyff’s Dream Team, I don’t know if he is entering the next one, it is still premature to affirm it. Likewise, it has always raised and reached the highest level after crises. Nor do I claim that he will lose the category, but it will be very difficult for him to light up in such a way that he can fight again at the top this season. There is only one football, in any country if things are handled badly from the head everything has repercussions. The managerial mistakes that have been made for a long time had to annihilate the goose that laid the golden eggs, which got tired of producing talent since the Masía lost its essence, has serious financial problems and got used to making mistakes in hiring and decisions that they had that will have an unfailing impact in the near future.


Barcelona. Ousmane Dembélé would have suffered a shoulder injury


Mexico City / 22.11.2020 13:01:31

It seems that problems haunt Barcelona in recent months, now, in addition to the results not accompanying, they are witnessing the injuries of several of their players such as Gerard Piqué, Sergi Roberto and, one more would be added to the list, Ousmane Dembélé.

The French footballer was one of the most redeemable of the Catalan team in yesterday’s defeat against Atlético de Madrid, you could tell he was recovering his game, however, now he would have to stop due to a possible shoulder injury.

As reported by the Spanish newspaper Sports world, the nicknamed Mosquito would have suffered a shoulder sprain caused by a bad fall in the match day 10 held on Saturday at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Today, medical tests were carried out on Dembélé at the Ciutat Sportiva Joan Gamper to find out his condition and, in the absence of an official message from the Barça team, the injury is being confirmed; it remains to know its severity.

This means that the French winger would have played a good part of the game with such annoyanceHowever, he was not replaced by Ronald Koeman and played the more than 95 minutes of this high-voltage duel.

The new shoulder injury would add to a long list of problems that Ousmane Dembélé has suffered since he was a Borussia Dortmund footballer like the thigh, which has given him so much trouble, and the constant tears.



Dembélé’s uncle arrested in Barcelona for showing false documentation

Malick Dembélé was arrested this Friday by the Urban Guard. He is the uncle of the FC Barcelona footballer Ousmane Dembélé, with whom he lives with a friend from ‘Mosquito’, and has been involved in a strange situation. First, because the electric car in which I was driving on the Ronda de Dalt has caught fire, an unusual event; and later, because he has presented false documentation, which is why the Urban Guard has detained him, according to information published by ‘El País’.


Act. a las 01:18


The events took place around 7:00 p.m. in one of the main arteries of the Catalan capital. The engine of his vehicle has started to spark and several drivers have alerted him and pulled him out of the electric car, remaining on the shoulder. The vehicle has finally caught fire and has had to be shut down by firefighters.

It was then that the Guàrdia Urbana arrived, which logically asked for the documentation. And they have found that the photograph did not coincide with Ousmane Dembélé’s uncle. Later, he showed his original passport, but had already given reasons to be detained by the police authorities.

Suspicion from police sources

According to the information of ‘El País’, the reason for having presented in the first instance some papers that did not correspond could be due, in the opinion of police sources, to the accumulation of traffic fines, many for speeding and the intention to hide your identity. Because of this suspicion, they began to check if he had enough points on his driving license to be able to circulate.

The forecast was that, once he took a statement, Malick would be released.
