Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele 'goes AWOL for 90 minutes'

Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele risks attracting more controversy after he reportedly went AWOL for an hour and a half.

According to RAC1 and Mundo Deportivo, Dembele did not notify Barca that he would miss training on Thursday morning with gastroenteritis.

Both outlets note the Catalans were initially unable to get hold of the 21-year-old, before the Frenchman returned their call an hour and a half later.

The incident would have caused ‘unrest’ among the Blaugrana’s coaching staff, although Marca claims the Frenchman attended Friday’s session.

Nonetheless, it is the latest in a growing line of reported incidents involving Dembele, who has come under fire for showing up late to training in the past.
