Barcelona coach Koeman delighted with Dembele form

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman admits he's delighted with the current form of Ousmane Dembele.

The Frenchman has finally gathered some momentum after an injury-ravaged time with the club, and it hasn't gone unnoticed by his coach.

Koeman said, "Ousmane has been here for many years and has had a lot of bad luck with injuries. It is difficult for him to be at his best level. I hope he continues physically well, he is training well, happy.

"I like the player because he offers something different to [Antoine] Griezmann, [Francisco] Trincao or Leo [Messi].

"He's excellent in one-on-one situation and can play with both feet. Hopefully he continues at this level."
