Arsenal legend Pires says Dembele should stay at Barcelona

Robert Pires does not think that Ousmane Dembele should be looking to leave Barcelona.

The former Arsenal and France winger sees Dembele as already being at the best club for his development.

The youngster has been going through some issues at the club, such as turning up late to training on numerous occasions.

“I love him [Dembele] very much,” Pires told Mundo Deportivo.

“We always talk about [Lionel] Messi, but this guy is very good.

“He’s young but what he does we all did as kids. What you must do is self-impose discipline in your life, but he is young and with his quality and talent, he can help Barca to win the Champions League and also the league, as we have seen against Tottenham and Espanyol with great goals.

“If I had to choose, I would not change Dembele for Neymar.

“Ousmane is 21, plays with the left and the right [foot] with a lot of quality with the ball.

“He has a lot of potential, more than what we’ve seen so far.”
