Ousmane Dembele slapped with $100,000 club record 'late' fine

The French international continues to prove stubborn at Barcelona

Barcelona slaps Ousmane Dembele $100,000 club record fine

The 21-year-old has gained notoriety for being late for training sessions and he repeated it on Sunday, just a day after his stunning goal against Espanyol in the Catalan debut.

Ousmane Dembele kept his teammates waiting for a two hour period as he arrived late on Sunday.

Diario AS understands that the fine imposed by Barcelona will exceed 100,000 euros, "and could even be double or triple that figure", although the actual figure and details of the fine will be kept private.

It wasn't the first time that Dembélé has kept his team mates waiting.

Ernesto Valverde has included him in his squad list for tonight's game against Tottenham - even though on Sunday, when the player failed to show at the Ciutat Esportiva, the coach was furious.

The club realizes that in terms of performance, Dembélé is in an excellent moment of form and that keeping him apart from the group or benching him as punishment would be detrimental to the team.
