Ousmane Dembélé’s agent, Moussa Sissoko, has shown his anger with Barça coach Xavi Hernández, in statements collected by The team. “Often when we talk about renewal we talk about money, but it is not only about that, it is also the management of their day to day. This sports management, entering without training right after COVID, is really difficult for us to understand” He said, in relation to the Cup match last Wednesday, in which Dembélé entered from the bench -and it was decisive-.
Nor did he like the soccer player’s environment, according to the aforementioned information, that Xavi made him play after passing the COVID and without having trained. The information explains that Dembélé’s friends and family had to look twice at television to make sure what they were seeing was true.
Dembélé replaced Ilias Akhomach after the break for Linares – FC Barcelona, which was 1-0. The entry of the Frenchman was essential for Barça to pass the tie: he tied in the 63rd minute and was the best of the team in the comeback (1-2).
A “priority” renovation
According to the French newspaper, the negotiations between Dembélé and FC Barcelona for the renewal of the attacker are still in place and could meet at the end of January. In fact, as they explain, the parties are not far apart economically, probably thanks to the insistence of Xavi, who on his arrival made clear the “priority” of the agreement.
L’Equipe explains that PSG is not considering the incorporation of the winger this summer, despite the fact that he would be free if he does not renew. However, they put Dembélé in the orbit of Chelsea. “Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea is one of the great candidates,” they report.
