Barcelona ‘furious’ with Ousmane Dembele after he failed to show for medical to assess injury
Dembele played the entirety of the 1-0 defeat in La Liga‘s opening fixture on Friday night, but appeared to be in discomfort as he left the pitch after the game.
As reported by Marca, Barcelona expected Dembele to attend an appointment on Saturday morning to assess the muscle problem, but the winger didn’t arrive until Monday.

When he was eventually assessed, it was revealed that Dembele had suffered a tear to his left hamstring, which may see him out of action for five weeks.
There were concerns over the 22-year-old’s attitude last season, with those doubts having now resurfaced.

OUSMANE DEMBELE’S CAREER
2015-2016: Rennes – 29 games, 12 goals, five assists
2016-2017: Borussia Dortmund – 50 games, 10 goals, 22 assists
2017-present: Barcelona – 66 games, 18 goals, 17 assists
Total: 145 games, 40 goals, 44 assists
Dembele’s injury leaves Barcelona short of attacking options, especially with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez also sidelined.
That means there will be much focus on Antoine Griezmann, who made his Barcelona debut against Bilbao following his summer switch from Atletico Madrid.
