Ousmane Dembemme: Impressive in Bordeaux
Ousmane Dembassy is an Ousmane defender who joined FC Barcelona at the start of the 2021-11 season. He has impressed the coaching staff at the club with his high work rate and dedication to the cause, despite not having played football since he was a teenager. Ousmane is originally from Fribourguia in France but moved to Barcelona when he was just 16. He made three appearances for the reserve team before joining Bordeaux, initially on loan, then on a permanent deal.
One of Ousmane Dembl’s great attributes is that he is committed to learning the sport and learning from past mistakes. This commitment has seen him develop into a top player both in defence and attack. Dembassy started to learn the game at a relatively young age, making his debut for FC Barcelona as a substitute during a match against PSV Eindhoven in 2021. He played one season for the club before leaving to sign for FC Twente in the Netherlands, where he impressed the coaching staff. Ousmane returned to Bordeaux to play one season in their B team before moving onto Vitoria Guindzhou in China.
Ousmane is now firmly established at FC Barcelona and has many fans who continue to follow his career and statistics. He is also regarded as one of the brightest prospects in central defence for the club and is a regular starter. However, he did have to begin his career on the bench and had to learn his defensive duties before being given a chance to play full-time. During his time on the bench he has earned praise from coach Vicio De Lo and his teammates as well as the supporters. Ousmane’s confidence is high due to his excellent statistics and his displays in the team.
Ousmane Demblam’s performances for Bordeaux have been rewarded with him being rewarded with a place in the starting line-up. The defender is playing at right-back and has impressed since making his debut in the 4-3 win over Genk in the Champions League. It was Ousmane Demblam’s chance to impress in a crucial clash against Manchester United and he made an excellent display which saw him come off the bench to score two goals. It was also his first goal for the club and he is confident that it will boost his confidence when he plays for Bordeaux next season. Bordeaux are expected to challenge for second place in the league, having lost three in a row and they need all the support they can get.
Ousmane Demblam has impressed with his displays for Bordeaux this season and he has earned the respect of his team-mates and coach. “I think he’s proving himself to be a very good player,” says Bordeaux coach Vincent Priolopin. “I like him a lot. I think he’s improving as a player and I also think he can contribute to our team’s performance. We’ve been lucky with him because he has given us an option and he has a very good football brain.”
Ousmane Dembema joined Bordeaux from FC Twente where he had played some football in the lower leagues but in 2021 he moved to France to join the Ligue 1 side. He has impressed with his goalscoring record in the French top flight and he has also scored twice in the Champions League. He has impressed coach Laurent Blanc on the training ground and the manager has given him the number 13 shirt which he wears. “Ousmane Dembema has a fantastic spirit,” Blanc told the media after the win over Manchester United. “I’ve been impressed by the way he has motivated himself to play every game this season.
Ousmane Dembema joined from FC Midtjylland in the summer and impressed on his debut. He played in central defence but proved he could also perform in a wide position and did so well at left wing-back. He is tall and slim with good pace and dribbling ability. He is also a goalscorer and a fine finisher so far with four goals in seven games for Bordeaux. Dembema has a good understanding of the game and is an excellent passer. On Sunday against Lens, he was named man of the match after a superb performance.
On the other flank, Belgian defender Mathieu Debuchy has impressed fans with his performances. The central defender started in defence but has since been shifted out to the left and right. If there’s someone who has impressed with his performances this season it has to be Ousmane Dembemme. The defender started brilliantly in the first half when Bordeaux were looking to take the lead but Diehl cracked a free-kick which went straight into the hands of Thierry Henry. The goalscoring performance from Dembemme came to an end as Henry equalised with a penalty following a tackle from the left. The defeat leaves Bordeaux with only third place and a lot more work to do.
