Barcelona have offered an update on Ousmane Dembele’s fitness after he was forced to withdraw from training this morning.

Dembele pulled out of the session, sparking fears he had suffered a relapse, and Barca say he felt “some discomfort” which is a “consequence of muscle fatigue.”

The Frenchman returned to first-team training at Barcelona two weeks ago after a stint in Doha recovering from his hamstring problem.

He had appeared to be progressing well with Setien talking about how his “capacity and intensity” had been making him all emotional.

Dembele had been expected to return to action some time in February, and it’s not clear yet if his latest discomfort will set him back.
