Ousmane Dembele thrilled with Barcelona start for Levante win

Ousmane Dembele was delighted to start for Barcelona in their win over Levante yesterday.

It was the striker's first start since his September hamstring injury and he impressed in the 3-0 win.

"I played a bit against Celta and I was also very excited to return to the stadium and also as a starter, but I am aware that I still have a lot to do to get to my best and I have to keep working for it," said Dembele.

"The hardest thing in all this time has been to maintain the concentration to recover quickly and meet the injury deadlines, I've had a lot of patience and now the most difficult thing is going to be integrating me little by little to the team.

"In these three long months, I have learned perfectly what the Barça game philosophy is."
