Dembele is already a protector of “Camp Nou”
One of the most influential figures in Barcelona’s dressing room, Gerard Picke, has taken young talented guy Usman Dembele under his guard, French team said. Dembele, for whom Barca paid 145 million euros (105 million + 40 million bonuses) in the summer, is shy, introverted and does not speak Spanish. On top of that he suffered a serious injury shortly after his debut in the team.
That’s why in the past few weeks Pique’s authoritative team has approached the 20-year-old Frenchman to help him integrate into the club, and to encourage him in the difficult moments the young man has experienced during his trauma.
Tensions from the great expectations of the media and fans only increase the stress of the wing. Pique knows he can have a major impact on Dembele’s future development.
