Dembele Out for Five Weeks with Hamstring Injury

Ousmane Dembele is set to miss “approximately five weeks” with a hamstring strain, Barcelona have confirmed.

The winger went 90 minutes in Barcelona’s La Liga opener against Athletic Club, which saw the reigning champions downed on a late goal from Aritz Aduriz.

However, the club confirmed Monday that Dembele has picked up a strain in his left hamstring, and will be out for around five weeks.

Dembele has enjoyed productive spells with the Liga champions since his move from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2017, but has often been limited by injuries.

A severe hamstring injury at the start of his time at Barca saw him miss over three months and he was sidelined for around another month with different muscle problem not long after his return.

Last season saw Dembele emerge as the preferred option in the Barca XI over Philippe Coutinho, but again he found himself sidelined with fitness issues at inopportune times.

An ankle injury last January knocked him out for three weeks and another muscle injury would sideline him for another month.

Then another hamstring injury in May ended Dembele’s season, and forced him to miss the Copa del Rey final against Valencia, which Barca lost 2-1.

His latest injury concern comes at a difficult time for Barca, as their front line has been limited by fitness issues to start the season. (Goal)
