Opinion: Dembele runs out of opportunities at Barcelona

With his most recent injury against Borussia Dortmund, Ousmane Dembele has run out of opportunities at FC Barcelona. 

FC Barcelona has given enough opportunities to Ousmane Dembele, the French player just suffered his third muscular injury of the season.

This time, we could see him visibly shaken by the situation as he left the pitch in tears during the match against Borussia Dortmund.

The latest mishap from Dembele is only part of a long list of deeds that made him fall from grace at the Camp Nou.

The overwhelming majority of the Barcelona fans on social media want him out of the squad.

The upcoming transfer window will be decisive for his future, we have good reason to believe the club will take the highest bid for him.

Dembele is part of a long list of failed transfers that FC Barcelona made over the last decade, and he is also one of the most expensive.

Alongside the one they did of Philippe Coutinho, the French winger could never live up to the hype created around him despite his obvious quality.

In recent years, Ousmane was even compared to Kylian Mbappe due to his skills.

The PSG forward has a close relationship with him, and he even sent a message through Twitter where he laments the fresh injury he suffered.

There is nothing that can save Dembele from being sold now, he just burned his last chance at redemption and it’s not even his direct fault. 

Barcelona should’ve done their research on Dembele. 

We wouldn’t be fair if we didn’t give FC Barcelona the part of responsibility they deserve for this situation, they too are to blame for Dembele’s failed transfer.

The Frenchman was already a rebellious player since he was part of Borussia Dortmund’s squad.

All the Catalan club watched on television was his dribbling skill, but they failed to question the club about his discipline.

Diario Sport reported nearly a year after his transfer that the German club’s officials didn’t hesitate when they got the offer from the Catalan club.

Nobody thought to ask why they decided to let one of their apparent best players leave just like that.

The Catalan club’s board simply assumed they were desperate for the money, they gave an offer that apparently nobody could refuse.

Little did they know, Barcelona was about to sign one of the most inconsistent players in their recent history.

There are many aspects of Dembele’s personality they should’ve made inquiries about, his tardiness is just the tip of the iceberg.

We are talking about an immature player who still doesn’t realize he is a professional footballer with a massive responsibility.

For some reason, Dembele still thinks he is playing for a football academy and he doesn’t take the job that seriously. 

Muscular injuries have been there from the start.

By the time FC Barcelona caught wind of the situation, it was already too late to make a return.

When the money was paid, there was no chance to go back on their decision and Dembele quickly showed the first red flags.

The player took a few months to make his debut because he suffered a muscular injury during training.

These problems became the norm for Ousmane, he has suffered at least a handful of muscular problems every season.

During the current tournament, the French forward already suffered four.

We are almost convinced that the Catalan club won’t give Ousmane a chance to save his career, especially with Neymar still lurking from the outside.

It is well known that Leo Messi is convinced that the Brazilian will be his successor, and Dembele seems like the obvious choice to drop when Neymar returns to Barcelona.

It’s a shame that such a talented player can’t seem to catch a break, but he is suffering the consequences of his own actions.

We’ll have to wait and see how long will Dembele miss at Barcelona, things are not looking good just by looking at the tears in his eyes.
