Dembele Suffers Fresh Injury Setback

Dembele Suffers Fresh Injury Setback

Barcelona French forward Ousmane Dembélé has suffered a fresh injury setback.

Dembele spent the first three months of the season on the sidelines after picking up a serious knee injury while on international duty for France at Euro 2020.

The 24-year-old has been injury prone during his four years at Barcelona so far, and he will have been desperate to return from his latest setback, which is his third long-term spell out since arriving at Camp Nou, adding to eight shorter term injuries.

The latest injury kept him out for 14 games in total, but he recently returned with a bright performance off the bench as Barcelona defeated Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

But in surprise news today(Thursday) Dembélé has suffered a fresh setback.

Barcelona have revealed that je has suffered a ‘strain in the semimembranosus muscle of his left hamstring’.

The setback means Dembélé will miss this weekend’s clash with Celta Vigo and it is not clear when he will return.

He will, however, be helped by the timing of the international break, which follows the Celta clash, and he will hope to recover over the course of that two weeks or so before Barca return to action against rivals Espanyol on November 20.
