- The Barcelona coach reiterates that “Ousmane is very important for the way I want to play”
Xavi again exhibited his confidence in Dembele, although he made it clear that his future depends exclusively on him: “I see him very happy, very involved in the project since I arrived. I have no complaints,” said the Terrassa coach, in the previous Barcelona-Sevilla, a match that he considers transcendental.
However, when analyzing the French winger’s future and the chances of him renewing, Xavi is less enthusiastic and more realistic: “It’s a question for Ousmane, I’m clear about it,” he said flatly.
And he stressed that “he is making a difference for us, he gives assists, in our way of playing he is very important because of how I want to play because in one on one he is very good”. He concluded that “it’s up to him.”
