Barcelona President Claims He’s Got A Better Player Than Neymar

Do you agree?




Ousmane Dembélé is “much better” than former Barcelona star Neymar, according to the club’s president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

Neymar left Barça for Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record €222 million transfer in 2017 and Dembélé arrived as his €105 million replacement from Borussia Dortmund.

Dembélé has scored 11 La Liga goals and 18 in all competitions since moving to Camp Nou, and Bartomeu heaped praise on the 21-year-old France winger.

“It’s not possible for Neymar to come to Barcelona as we have another sporting project with Dembélé and [Philippe] Coutinho,” Bartomeu told TVE ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League quarterfinal second leg against Manchester United.

“We are happy with what we have, as Dembélé is better than Neymar and he is a good professional player. He is a young guy who arrived at a huge club and that’s not easy, but he has adapted and he is much better than Neymar.”

Maybe he’s still hurt? Or do you agree?
