Dembele has been chased by the owner of the home he occupied while with Borussia Dortmund after leaving the place in a sorry state.
The owner's testimony was quoted by BILD: "The house was only a garbage can. There was one in each room.
"When I came home for the first time, I was scared."
The landlord had been demanding €20,000 in compensation, however Dembele was ordered by the court to pay €10,000.
