Ousmane Dembele, a forward for Barcelona, has spoken out about his first five seasons with the team, referring to them as wasted years.

The French winger moved to Camp Nou from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, but it took him a while to adjust. It has only been in the past year or so that he has begun to resemble the player the Blaugrana had thought he would be.

The 25-year-old said he could have handled things better in his interview with RMC after reflecting on his career to date. He’s still young, though, and now looks to be heading in the right direction.

When asked about his way of life during his initial years in Barcelona, Dembele replied, “I was young as everyone has been.

“But I was able to overcome that challenge. But it’s not what most people believed.

“I was a huge time waster from 2017 to 2021. Five years of my life have been lost.”

The multiple injuries the France international sustained hindered his development. It was argued that improper training was to blame for these setbacks.

“I sustained numerous hamstring injuries. Working hard will prevent you from becoming stuck “”Dembele” stated.

“They warned me that if I didn’t build up my strength, I might hurt myself. That improved under Ronald Koeman and Xavi.

“I haven’t been hurt since then. We keep working while crossing our fingers. I’m doing well at Barcelona, I feel good about myself, and the entire team and club trust me. I’m also content. Now that football is the topic of conversation, it is better.”

Dembele also revealed that he knew he would renew his contract as long ago as December last year and that Xavi played a big part in that.

“With Xavi’s trust, I felt I had to stay. I really want Barcelona to win the Champions League again, it’s been seven years,” said Dembele.
