Dembele: I'll be at Barca for a long time

16 April 2018

Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele insisted he would be at the LaLiga giants for a long time despite being yet to hit top form.

Dembele, 20, made a move to Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund in August last year for a reported €105million.

However, a hamstring injury derailed the France international`s season early and he has managed just 12 league appearances – seven of those starts – this campaign.

But Dembele is still planning to prove himself at Barcelona, dismissing any suggestions he could leave at season`s end.

I`m not going to leave after just one season, he told Telefoot. I signed a five-year contract with Barcelona.

I`ll be here for a long time.

The arrival of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid in the off-season could further hurt Dembele`s chances of game time at Camp Nou.

But Dembele said he expected competition for places at a club like Barcelona.

It`s Barca. It`s like that. I`m glad that [Philippe] Coutinho has come in, he said.
