Dortmund maintain Dembele suspension
Borussia Dortmund on Sunday said Ousmane Dembele remained suspended “until further notice” for skipping training this week, as speculation continues to swirl over the wantaway forward’s possible move to Barcelona.
“Borussia Dortmund have decided to maintain the player Ousmane Dembele’s suspension from team training until further notice,” the Bundesliga outfit said in a statement.
Dembele was sanctioned after he failed to show up for practice on Thursday, the same day Dortmund announced they had rejected Barca’s opening offer for the France international.
The youngster was fined and initially suspended until Monday, missing Dortmund’s 4-0 win over Rielasingen-Arlen on Saturday.
“Our focus is now on a concentrated preparation of the team for the Bundesliga opening match in Wolfsburg this coming weekend,” Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc said in a statement.
“Ousmane Dembele of course has the option to train separately from the group.”
Dembele seems to be saying to Dortmund 'You can't see me'.
