Dembele the French striker of Barcelona mentioned his Argentine teammate as the best player in the history of football.
“I have changed a lot,” Osman Dembele, who has had many difficulties since joining from Borussia Dortmund to Barcelona in 2017, told the official website of the European Football Association (UEFA). I think I have changed a lot more physically. I think when I joined Barcelona; I was very weak and fragile. Even when I was playing for Rennes and Borussia Dortmund, I was very thin, but I spent a lot of time with Barcelona bodybuilding coaches to improve my physical condition. The way I, train and the way I prepare for the games have all changed.
He added: “I have made progress in recent years, so it is natural for me to change a little. I am more comfortable now and I feel good about being on the Barcelona team and my personal life here. Even those three years when I had minor physical problems were the challenges of my life and in such cases; you have to face them with a smile.
The French striker of the Blues, who has played in 100 games for the team so far and has scored 25 goals and 20 assists, said in another part of his speech: There are excellent players in Barcelona who can be played every day. They learned things. I had the opportunity to play with Andres Iniesta and Luis Suarez, who gave me a lot of advice when I joined Barça.
“Lionel Messi has also given me a lot of advice,” said 23-year-old Dembele in praise of his Argentine teammate. Leo is a genius and we all know him. Messi is the best player in the history of football. When I was younger, I was inspired by him and Messi is still my inspiration. I must honestly say that playing alongside Messi is an honor for me.
