Barcelona Coach Ernesto Valverde Issues Ousmane Dembele Demand

Barcelona Coach Ernesto Valverde is keen to see forward Ousmane Dembele perform on a regular basis.

Barcelona paid a whopping £135m to sign Dembele from Borrusia Dortmund last summer following the exit of Neymar to PSG.

But the winger endured a difficult first season at the Camp Nou due to injuries.

Phillipe Coutinho joined Barcelona as their most expensive signing ever in January, a transfer which has provided competition for Dembele.

Dembele was linked with a move away from La Liga and a host of Premier League clubs were interested in him.

However, the Frenchman never left the Camp Nou and he has started all three La Liga matches this season.

And Valverde wants the 21-year-old to deliver on a regular basis, with other players ready to step in.

"He's the same player [as the one Barcelona signed]," Valverde said.

"He's great going forward, great at finding space, he scores goals.

"We also want consistency from him.

"He's working very hard in training but essentially he is the same player.

"There will be big games when we need him to rise to the occasion, but that's his job."

Dembele has scored two goals this season including a goal in the 8-2 thrashing of Huesca.

Barcelona face Real Sociedad on Saturday and hope to main their perfect start to the new season.
