Barcelona’s Manager, Ernesto Valverde have confirmed his 20 year old star, Ousmane Dembele would be out for four months due to torn hamstring suffered yesterday in his team’s 2-1 victory away against Getafe.
The new recruit from Dortmund had to be withdrawn in the first half of his side’s dramatic win, leaving the field after sustaining the problem while attempting a back-heel near the corner flag when the match was still goalless.
After conducting tests on Sunday, Barca released a statement which read: “The tests have come back following first team player Ousmane Dembele has ruptured the tendon in his femoral bicep in his left thigh.
“The player will be operated on by Dr. Sakari Orava in Finland this week. He is expected to be out for between three and a half months and four months.”
The problem, which is in Dembele’s left leg, will see him miss the first half of the season in a huge blow to the Catalans after his initial €105million move from Borussia Dortmund.
