Boateng believes Dembele “is a little boy”

According to the former Barcelona loanee, the Frenchman needs to be pointed “in the right direction” in order to fulfill his potential at the Spanish La Liga.

Kevin-Prince Boateng played together with Ousmane Dembele during his six-month loan at Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona.

“He is very calm, does not talk much. He is still like a child for me,” Boateng told Goal.

“You have to take him as he is and it may be that he’s late [to training].”

He added: “There are players who do that in defiance, but that’s different with him, he’s just like a little boy.”

“One who earns a lot of money. One who is extremely public. You have to point him in the right direction.”

What counts is what’s done: Albert Celades

New Valencia boss Albert Celades is not afraid of taking decisions for his club, as he prepares to play in the UEFA Champions League.

“For me, he’s still a little boy who was thrown into this giant pool, suddenly cost €150m overnight, and still doesn’t know how it all works because he just wants to play football,” Boateng concluded.
