Barcelona coach Valverde pleased with Dembele for Malaga win

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde was delighted with Ousmane Dembele's performance for victory over Malaga.

After a difficult debut season at the Camp Nou, the former Borussia Dortmund winger looked settled on Saturday and his football was free-flowing as a result.

"The thing about Dembele is that he always tries, he has a place here," Valverde explained in his post-match press conference.

"He's a player who needs time, he's young and had injuries, there is pressure on him.

"Today is yet another step forward for him."
