CatRadio: 'Furious' Abidal holds emergency meeting with Dembele's agent
- The Frenchman didn't report for the medical tests last Saturday and travelled abroad despite a hamstring tear which was confirmed this Monday.
- Eric Abidal and the player's agent Moussa Sissoko have been involved in the 90-minute-long heated conversation on this subject.
- The club demand Dembele to change his attitude if he wants to stay at Barca.
Ousmane Dembele has reportedly found himself in the hot waters. The Frenchman didn't report for the medical tests last Saturday and allegedly travelled abroad without the club's permission. The situation worsened on Monday as he was diagnosed with a hamstring tear which would rule him out for five weeks.
Dembele's issue has coincided with Luis Suarez's unfortunate calf injury, Lionel Messi lacking match fitness and the neverending Neymar transfer saga. No wonder Barcelona are allegedly unhappy with the player.
According to CatRadio, his agent Moussa Sissoko and the club's sporting director Eric Abidal has held an emergency meeting earlier this Friday, August 23. Here are the alleged key details of this conversation, as provided by the same source:
- The whole meeting has lasted for 90 minutes.
- Both sides have expressed their dissatisfaction as raised voices have been heard.
- Abidal reportedly got so furious that he even demanded Dembele change his attitude if he wants to stay at Barca.
Dembele is expected to receive a hefty fine for his failure to attend the medical tests last week. By the way, he is the club's most fined player of all time. At the end of October 2018, his total fine was valued at €50k as he had been late for one of Barca's training sessions.
Moreover, ESPN have recently reported that Barca could include Dembele in the exchange deal to bring Neymar back. Previously, they were against this idea. Clearly, the latest incident could be the last straw for the Catalans.
