Barcelona coach Xavi happy to field Dembele against Granada

Barcelona coach Xavi is happy to count on Ousmane Dembele against Granada.

Dembele is one of the many Barcelona players at the centre of much media attention lately, with it even being suggested that the Frenchman could have played his last game for the club unless he agrees to sign a renewed contract.

"He's part of the squad," Xavi insisted. "He has played almost without training at all, and he makes a difference.

"We need him, he's shown a good attitude.

"He'll be an important player for us and he's part of the squad."
