Ousmane Dembele is one of the most exciting wingers in the world and is very pacey. Dembele made his move to PSG from FC Barcelona in the summer of 2023 for 50 million euros. He arrived at FC Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund for a record fee of 135 million euros. His time at the Catalan club did not live up to his high expectations, but he still shared his love for the club. In a recent interview, Dembele talked about the differences between PSG and FC Barcelona.

Dembele talked about his challenging time at FC Barcelona but still loves the club while playing at PSG. Dembele said, "I love Barça very much. It was a dream come true when I signed for them. At the end of my second season at Barça, I hired a physical trainer. His arrival changed a lot of things on the pitch and in my life. We worked in training and on my days off. He helped me a lot. In fact, I still have him with me here in PSG."

Dembele described his tough time at Barca and said, "I suffered a lot there, in Barcelona. I went through some very difficult times. And then, little by little, with the passing of the years, everything got better... It's the logical evolution of a young professional player who, over the years, has changed a lot of things."

Dembele compares the two clubs and says, "Differences between Barça and PSG? Barça is a very big club, we know that. But PSG is also a big club. When you go to the city, they recognise you straight away. Frankly, apart from the weather, for me there hasn't been much change. In terms of the difference between PSG's stadium and Barça's stadium, the Spotify Camp Nou is huge and historic. But at the Parc des Princes, the atmosphere is exceptional."

Dembele is grateful for both Xavi and Luis Enrique as he recognizes both Spanish managers' trust in him. Dembele said, "The nature of my relationship with Luis Enrique is more or less the same as with Xavi. I had some incredible moments with Xavi. We were very close. He gave me a lot of advice and trusted me a lot. I've known Luis Enrique for a long time, because he wanted me to come to Barcelona when I was at Rennes. I'm very happy to have him as a coach."
