Umtiti: Dembele will replace Neymar void

New Barcelona Ousmane Dembele will fill the void left by Neymar at the Camp Nou, according to his new teammate Samuel Umtiti.

The pair are already international colleagues for France and after the 20-year-old Dembele completed his €145m move to the Blaugrana, the former Lyon defender believes he can match expectations.

“I'm really happy he's joining us because he is the type of player who we have missed since Neymar left us,” Umtiti is quoted as saying by ESPN.

“He's a very carefree person in relation to everything that happens, in relation to the talent he has. It's one of his strengths and I hope he will help us to win titles.

“I cannot wait to see him. He is a player who will demonstrate his talent in our team, in our league.”
