Barcelona hero Eric Abidal has urged his old club to be patient with Ousmane Dembele.
"If you want Suarez, Messi and Griezmann, why sign Dembele?" he told El Larguero. "There are questions.
"Signing Coutinho means some will have to sit on the bench, that is why I say it is good to sign great players but it depends on the vision of the club.
"In football, the future is more important and it is better to have the best players in your team. Having a player like Griezmann in your team is always an advantage."
"[Dembele] is very young and has a lot of talent," added Abidal. "We are all waiting for him to return to his best.
"I don't doubt his performances and the work that he will do at the club. It is very difficult to change team; the body has to adapt and his diary and nutrition will be different."
