Ousmane Dembele Set to have Surgery on Hamstring Injury

Ousmane Dembele Set to have Surgery on Hamstring Injury

Against Getafe, at the weekend, Ousmane Dembele limped off very early in the game.

Our record signing appeared to have picked up a hamstring injury.

However, it appears that the injury is worse than first thought.

The 20-year-old, signed from Borussia Dortmund in the last few days of the summer transfer window, has ruptured the tendon in his femoral bicep in his left thigh.

The injury will require surgery and the club has announced that Ousmane will travel to Finland, this week, for surgery.

As for an expected period of absence, the initial diagnosis suggests that Ousmane could miss the next three months of the La Liga season, not the ideal way to start your career at your new club.

Here at Vital Barcelona we wish the youngster all the best as he contemplates what is probably his first lengthy spell on the side-lines courtesy of injury.
