Dembele: When I Realised Messi Wasn't Human

Ousmane Dembele: When I Realised Lionel Messi Wasn't Human

By Kurt Buckerfield - Sep 07, 2017 05:00 PM @KurtLaduma

New FC Barcelona signing Ousmane Dembele has revealed when he first thought Lionel Messi is "not from this world".

UEFA Launch FFP Investigation Into PSG Spending

The 20-year-old Frenchman recently recalled two Barca games he remembers most when he was younger – the 2009 UEFA Champions League semi-final against Chelsea, and when Messi fired four past Arsenal in 2010.

"I remember two games especially," Dembele told Sport.

"One against Chelsea, when (Andres) Iniesta scored the goal to qualify for the Champions League final.

"When I see Andres now, I remember it. I can't wait to tell him. And the other was a Champions League game against Arsenal.

"Barcelona had done well in the first leg but in the second leg they produced a brilliant performance, with four goals from (Lionel) Messi.

"That's when I realised Messi's not from this world. It was incredible."

Mbappe: Why I Joined PSG

Dembele joined the Spanish giants during the latest transfer window for a reported fee of €105 million (R1.65 billion).

Do you think Dembele and Messi will link up well at Barca? Let us know in the comments section below.

It's the same with Mbappe. CR7 IS his Idol, but recently he's praising Ronaldinho and Neymar. But hey, we understand.

Dembele was once called "Little Ronaldo" and he IS a big fan of CR7. He once said he prefers CR7 over the vomiting one.
