Ousmane Dembélé is laughing at Diario MARCA. The French winger was criticized by the Madrid-based daily, first for not showing up as early as other players who are not in the match day squad do:

Normally players who aren’t part of the coach’s match day squad go to the Camp Nou early to be with their teammates, listen to the coach’s team talk in the dressing room and try to be as close as possible to the rest of the squad.


He arrived just as the game was about to kick off, showing up five minutes before Mateu Lahoz signalled the start of proceedings.

MARCA also found a problem with his seating choice:

At first, he was not sat in the area near the Barcelona dugout which is reserved for technical staff but eventually found a seat in that section.

Finally, and most curiously, MARCA criticized his fashion accessories:

He sported a rather curious look too, wearing metallic glasses and a hat despite the 19 degree temperature.

The news was aggregated by a Barcelona Instagram page. A user sarcastically answered:

Next headline be like ‘Ousmane dembele didn’t roll on his bed within one night, despite him having a king size bed and he used somewhat odd pillow cases.’

The player answered the user with a hearty laugh and a string of emojis, indicating his amusement.
