Was Dembele's Injury Preventable?

Was Dembele's Injury Preventable?

Barcelona fans have seen but a fleeting glimpse of their summer signing, Ousmane Dembele.

The French forward was unfortunate enough to pick up a bad injury in one of his early appearances and has been side-lined since and isn`t expected to be available for selection until the new year.

The former Borussia Dortmund youngster, who cost Barcelona a transfer fee of £135.5 million, has been sorely missed with Ernesto Valverde unable to decide who, in a front three, should play alongside Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.

However, it seems that with regards to the injury, one source is suggesting it could have been prevented.

The Spanish news vehicle, Mundo Deportivo, is of the view that the injury could have been caused by the player over-exerting himself in order to make his high-profile move a success.

Now we`re not sure we`re buying in to that scenario, injuries happen and can happen at any time in a players career and as for that pressure on him to succeed, doesn`t giving it all come as part and parcel of the modern game?
