BREAKING NEWS: Barca star Ousmane Dembele out for months

La Liga By: Uche Duru | 17/09/2017

Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele has been ruled out for some months in an injury blow that has gripped the star after the last match against Getafe.

Barcelona have confirmed that the 20-year-old will be out of the team for four months, as head coach Ernesto Valverde fears he suffers a torn hamstring in Saturday's 2-1 victory away against Getafe, which was his full LaLiga debut.

After conducting tests on Sunday, Barca released a statement which read:

"The tests have come back following first team player Ousmane Dembele has ruptured the tendon in his femoral biceps in his left thigh.

"The player will be operated on by Dr. Sakari Orava in Finland this week. He is expected to be out for between three and a half months and four months."
