Ousmane Dembele didn’t give his best in Qatar on Sunday. The French media severely criticized the FC Barcelona winger, who was substituted during the first half of the World Cup final, as France ended up losing to Argentina on penalties.
However, as Mundo Deportivo has learned, the France international is more keen than ever to show his sporting ambition with Barcelona in this second part of the season, which begins with the derby against Espanyol on December 31.
Those close to Dembele immediately saw his desire to make up for the bitter taste this World Cup final left him as soon as possible.
Those close to the player were able to witness the frustration that befell Dembele in the World Cup final, but also appreciated how his strong personality appeared to respond with force and a promise of determination for immediate challenges. They saw him hungry for success with Barcelona.
The feeling Dembele left in the hours after defeat in the World Cup final, which would have been his second title, is that he has a strong determination to turn that feeling into motivation to help Barcelona win titles this season.
At the moment, Dembele, along with his teammates, led by Xavi Hernandez, left the league leaders, which became the biggest goal of the season in which it is still possible to fight for other titles, such as the Spanish Super Cup, the King’s Cup and the European League.
His four goals and five assists in his first 14 league games, Dembele only wants to serve as a start for what he can bring to Barcelona at the end of the season who knows how important that will be to the club.
