Football 9 January 2019 12:12 GMT
PSG and former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has labelled his former player Ousmane Dembele a little crazy but was amazed by his skills in training.
Dembele played under Tuchel after leaving Rennes before switching to Barcelona for an initial €105 million (£94.5 million) and has come into criticism after coming to training late several time.
According to quotes carried by Goal’s Dejan Kalinic, he said:
“Ousmane is an incredible player, he’s really talented. I could watch his amazing skills in every training session.
“He’s also a great human being. He’s a little crazy. He’s a really nice boy but a little crazy. He loves to laugh but can also have very serious conversations. It’s never boring with him.
“If he’s focused enough, he can reach any level. When I talked to him for the very first time, he told me that he wanted to play for Barcelona. That’s where he is now.
“It means he can reach any level, but he needs to remain focused and improve each day.”
