The Blaugrana striker has been diagnosed with a complete hamstring tear in his right leg, the La Liga giant announced on Tuesday. Dembélé suffered the blow during a training session on Monday, after speeding up his recovery from a hamstring problem that has marginalized him since November.
“Tests on Ousmane Dembélé on Tuesday showed that the player had a complete proximal hamstring tear in the right thigh,” the club said. “In the next few hours, a decision will be made on the treatment to be followed for his recovery,” he added.
Although the club has not set a deadline for its recovery, several sources in Spain claim that its season is well and truly over.
