Barcelona forward, Luis Suarez, has given some advice to his club team mate, Ousmane Dembele, urging him to be more serious if he wants to make a career at Barcelona.
The two will face each other in a friendly today at the Stade de France
In the pre-game press conference, Suarez said that while Dembele is by no means a failure at Barcelona, he would need more focus to win his doubters over
“It’s not that he did not adapt because the relationship with his team-mates is very good,” he said. “We see him being happy.
“But as some of my team-mates have said, and Ousmane knows, football is a privilege for every player, and I think he needs to focus more, and be more serious on some points.”
He added: “There are many people around him in Barcelona who he can draw inspiration from, people with great professionalism. But he deserves to be there and triumph with Barcelona.”
The immensely talented winger joined the Spanish powerhouse in 2017 for a deal worth £97 million ($124m) but has since then struggled with a mixture of injury and form.
He was part of the France squad that went all the way in the World cup earlier this year even though he only played a bit part role in the triumph.
