Barcelona coach Valverde sets date for Dembele comeback

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde is happy to delay Ousmane Dembele's return to action.

Dembele is now training with the first team after recovering from a serious knee injury in the early weeks of the season.

Valverde is pleased with the Frenchman's progress, but won't rush him back

Marca says Dembele is expected to make his playing return on January 7 for their meeting with Levante.

Barca management plan to ease the striker back into action with the view to him being in prime shape to face Chelsea in their Champions League tie.
