The new season is just around the corner and Ronald Koeman has already made a huge decision. Ousmane Dembélé is set to be a key part of Barcelona heading into the 2020/21 campaign.
It might come as a surprise to some but this is actually the Frenchman’s fourth season in Catalonia. Of course, with all of his niggling injuries, we haven’t exactly seen much of him out on the pitch.
However, in this short span of time he’s spent with the team, Koeman has taken a good look at the young winger. And luckily, he likes what he’s seen. The new reports suggest that the gaffer has already decided that Dembélé will be a key part of Barcelona in the coming season.
He’s been training extremely well and seems to finally be fit. Of course, we’ve heard this before and it’s really important to take things slowly. But the player himself is adamant on finally proving a point.
It would be fairly easy for him to throw in the towel and admit defeat. But he does seem more motivated than ever to succeed at the Camp Nou.
Is this finally the ‘redemption season‘ the fans have been waiting for? It still remains to be seen but the early signs seem to be positive.
Step by step, Dembélé should be back and stronger than ever. And with him fit and firing on all cylinders, Barcelona will rise as well.
