Dembele pulls out of Barca training

Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele has not played since November 27

Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele pulled out of training on Monday amid fears the Frenchman has suffered a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury.

"During this morning's training session, Ousmane Dembele felt some discomfort in his right leg as a consequence of muscle fatigue," Barcelona said in a statement. "He will continue with his rehabilitation."

Dembele has not played for Barca since November 27 but had been expected to return this month.

The 22-year-old has endured a spate of injuries since moving to Camp Nou from Borussia Dortmund in 2017 and has only made nine appearances this term.
