Barcelona Introduce New Rule To Stop Ousmane Dembélé From Turning Up Late For Training
Barcelona believes that they might have found a solution for dealing with Ousmane Dembélé.
The 21-year-old Frenchman has produced some magical moments for the Spanish club, including his superb solo effort against Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League.
However, the former Borussia Dortmund star has had a problem when it comes to turning up for training, as well as when he reported late for Barcelona's match with Real Betis last month.
According to Marca, Barça have introduced a rule for the World Cup winner: he is not allowed to turn his phone off.
In fact, the club's extreme measures mean that he is not allowed to have it on silent overnight.
Why? It's so they can reach him if he ends up oversleeping.
Talk about implementing a drastic measure, right?
At least Dembélé has his very own personal alarm clock if he doesn't wake up in the mornings.
Last month, the reigning La Liga champions claimed that Dembélé might suffer from a gaming addiction.
