The star signing of Ousmane Dembélé for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has generated enormous expectations in the world of football. However, so far, the French winger’s performance has not met the high expectations that were had of him. The criticism has not been long in coming, and one of the most vocal has been the well-known sports journalist Daniel Riolo.
In his program “After Foot” on RMC Sport, Riolo did not hesitate to express his concern about Dembélé’s performance at PSG. Riolo classified the player as “a problem” for the team, pointing out that he has not yet managed to score a goal this season. Furthermore, he raised the possibility that other players, such as Kolo Muani, could take his place in the once-starting team.
While it is true that Dembélé showed some improvement in the last game against Marseille, his performance against Clermont left a lot to be desired. To date, the player has not managed to score a single goal with the PSG shirt and has provided only one assist, figures well below the expectations that were had for him.
The price of his transfer, which reached 50 million euros, and the responsibility of making up for the losses of Messi and Neymar, make the pressure on Dembélé even greater. Fans hope that the talented French winger will prove his worth and become an important pillar of the team.
The critics are on him
It’s important to remember that adapting to a new team and a different league can take time, and not all players make an immediate impact. Dembélé has the quality and potential to shine at PSG, but he needs time and confidence to show it.
Coach Luis Enrique also plays a key role in Dembélé’s development at PSG. His choice of formation and tactics will influence the player’s performance. Fans hope that Enrique can bring out the best in Dembélé and help him reach his full potential.
