Barcelona confirmed on Friday that Ousmane Dembele will miss the next 10 weeks after picking up a hamstring injury against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

The forward lasted only 25 minutes of the tie against his former side before leaving the pitch in tears after suffering yet another injury setback.

Barcelona have now confirmed he is out until 2020 and is unlikely to be back in action before February.

“A medical examination has confirmed that first team player Ousmane Dembélé has suffered a muscle injury to the biceps femoris of his right hamstring. His estimated layoff time is approximately 10 weeks.”

Dembele’s injury is the ninth he has suffered since joining the club from Borussia Dortmund in August 2017 and is yet another blow for the 22-year-old.
