Barcelona confirmed on Monday that Ousmane Dembele will miss the next 15 days with the ankle injury picked up against Leganes on Sunday.

The French forward hobbled off in the second half of the 3-1 win after putting in a dazzling display, and he’ll now miss the next couple of weeks.

“Tests carried out on first team player Ousmane Dembélé have confirmed a sprained ankle that will keep him our of action for approximately 15 days.”

Although it’s a blow it’s a relief that Dembele will not be sidelined for too long, with the Champions League set to resume next month.

The youngster looks set to miss both Copa del Rey quarter-finals matches against Sevilla as well as La Liga games against Girona and Valencia.
