Catalan giants FC Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele has suffered an injury once again and will be sidelined for up to a month. The club says the young France forward picked up a hamstring injury in his left leg in the 4-2 win at Real Sociedad on Sunday.
Dembele recently made a return to the team after injuring his knee in September and was out of play for a period of four months. On making his return to the team, the French winger has yet again suffered another injury.
Dembele, signed from Borussia Dortmund last year as a replacement for Neymar, was out for more than three months after rupturing a thigh tendon in his left leg on Sept. 16.
Barcelona says the injuries were not related.
The club also said Monday that Andres Iniesta has a right calf problem, but did not say how long the midfielder will be out. Club record signing Philippe Coutinho also suffers from a hamstring injury and will make his debut for the club after a period of two weeks.
