Ousmane Dembele is set to begin treatment on his latest injury on Sunday at the Aspetar Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital in Qatar.

Barcelona confirmed on Friday that the French forward will miss the next 10 weeks after picking up a hamstring problem against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

He will now head to Qatar for the start of his rehab and will also have sessions back at Barcelona at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.

The injury is Dembele’s ninth of his short Barcelona career and means he will miss almost three months of the season and will not return until February.
