Dembele pledges future to Barcelona

Ousmane Dembele has confirmed he won't leave Barcelona after just one year following his exclusion from the Catalans' starting line-up by Ernesto Valverde on Saturday.

Barcelona made the French international their record signing following Neymar's departure, although an early injury put paid to any hopes of Dembele hitting the ground running.

"I'm not going to leave after just one season. I signed a five-year contract with Barcelona. I'll be here for a long time.

"I'm not at the top of my game right now. Little by little, I will return to my best.

"I'm working on my cardio because I get tired very quickly." Dembele said in an interview with Telefoot

There have been glimpses of his ability, and when the 20-year-old has been given the chance he's added real width to the Blaugrana's attacking moves, the highlight being his performance against Chelsea in the Champions League.
