BARCELONA – Ousmane Dembélé caused discomfort at FC Barcelona after missing the training Thursday without notice and training on Friday, referring to a gastroenteritis that after almost two hours the doctors of the club could see Thursday with the obvious inconvenience of not knowing or his whereabouts, nor the reasons for his absence in the sports town of the club azulgrana.
Dembélé did not show up for the training of Thursday and, worst of all, none of the club informed. When he discovered information from RAC1, the French footballer responded no more than one and a half hours to the calls and messages from the club, when he eventually gave signs of life, realizing he was in bed because of a strong gastroenteritis that was treated in your own home by a member of medical services.
The French footballer went this Friday to the sports town Barca, but did not participate in the preparatory session of the staff under the command of Valverde and stayed in the gym to do repair work. In this way his call for Sunday's game against Betis would now be called into question, pending the training on Saturday, after which the list of players quoted by Valverde will be announced.
In anticipation of what will happen to Dembélé, the coach of Barça is already clear that he will not be able to count on Coutinho against Betis for the rupture of the femoral biceps he suffered, adding his loss to that of Vermaelen and Samper.
The Brazilian, who has been diagnosed with a loss of between two and three weeks, could be ready on 24 November to play in the Metropolitan against Atlético de Madrid.
Before we go this Sunday, we have to wait for the results with the injuries of Messi and Umtiti. Both could receive medical discharge and be able to enter the call, which, as in the case of Dembélé, will only be known on Saturday.
