Ousmane Dembele is an interesting player, a youngster filled with immense amounts of talent that are only beginning to become exposed in Barcelona’s scheme. One of the natural comparisons to young fast players like Dembele seems to be comparing them to sports cars, and Dembele’s best comparison is a Ferrari under construction.

Asked if he was a Ferrari, Dembele said: “A Ferrari? That’s too much. You can say I’m a Ferrari under construction. Let’s hope that I can get there.”

Another interesting part of the interview was Dembele discussing the more negative side of this play. When asked about his biggest flaw as a player, Dembele was pretty candid.

“Losing the ball in silly ways. I always try to fix it, every season. And here it’s not a joke. At Barca there are few balls given away and when you lose one, you see immediately and it’s not forgiven. The level of demand is very high. I have to fix this as soon as possible.”
