Dembele reveals: Suarez told me this before the game
After his debut for Barcelona, Ousmane Dembele reveals what coach and team-mate Ousmane Dembele gave him before the match. The youngster followed the advice. On Saturday, ex-Dortmund Ousmane Dembele made his debut for FC Barcelona. At the 5-0 gala in the derby against Espanyol, the 20-year-old was awarded 68th place in the city derby. Coach Ernesto Valverde only told him to”let me relax and stay calm”, said Dembele in the sports paper Sport, whereas the advice of star striker Luis Suarez was somewhat more selfish:”He told me to give him the ball, and then I had to give it to him. I did, and he hit me. Shortly before the end of the match, Dembele overcame the right side, crossed the edge of the box and Suarez finished 5-0,”It was funny to see the best players in the world. It was a good victory and I had a lot of emotions. I made my dream come true,”enthused the youngster – among other things, about Lionel Messi’s appearance at the World Cup in Russia, who scored three goals and was once again the man of the evening.
