Rivaldo goes back on Dembele criticism after recent performance

Rivaldo goes back on Dembele criticism after recent performance

Back in autumn, Rivaldo said that Dembouz didn't have the right to stay at the club amid the Man United interest.

Now he believes that Dembele needs to focus on what's important: football and Barca.

The Brazilian highlights Ousmane's skills and personality.

"I admit that I have criticised Ousmane Dembele at times but what I have always said is that he is a great player who simply needs to stop being distracted and focus on what is important: football and Barcelona," Rivaldo has written in his Betfair column. (h/t Marca)

"He has a lot of brilliant resources and he can play with both feet. He has a lot of personality too. If he is focused, he will be able to impress everyone."

Lately, Dembele has been playing his best football since joining the Catalans. So far, the Frenchman has recorded five goals and three assists in 17 matches for Barca.

As for Rivaldo, he's been rather harsh when talking about the 23-year-old in the past. After reports about Dembouz refusing to leave for Manchester United, the Brazilian said that Ousmane had no right to reject the move.
