Figo admits being a fan of Barcelona attacker Dembele

Former Barcelona attacker Luis Figo is a fan of Ousmane Dembele.

Dembele has his critics at Barca.

But Figo acknowledged that "if you ask me about a footballer who reminds me of the way I play, I will tell you that I like Dembélé a lot.

"He has had bad luck with injuries, but he has enormous potential. Then there are others like Gnabry, from Bayern, is very good, and young. They are wingers and I like them for their self-confidence when looking for one against one situations.

"Ansu Fati also started that way. They are players that I like because they like to take risks and are not afraid. Portu, from Real Sociedad, I also like."
