The Barcelona forward was dismissed during the weekend clash against Sevilla and will now be suspended for two games.
According to nanansem.com sources, Dembele was dismissed at the end of their 4-0 win against Sevilla for saying ‘you’re very bad’ to the referee, in response to Ronald Araujo’s red card.
Referee Antonio Mateu confirmed in his report that Dembele frequently used ‘Muy malo’, translating as ‘very bad’, and that he was shown a red card for dissent.
Debutant Ronald Araujo was shown a straight red card for a foul on fellow substitute Javier Hernandez.
Dembele was then dismissed for his excessive protests to referee Antonio Lahoz in the aftermath, reportedly telling the official that he was ‘very bad’.
Messi tried to help stop Dembele from receiving his marching orders by insisting to the referee that the Dembele cannot speak Spanish very well, but his efforts proved to be in vain.
Masour Ousmane Dembele is a French professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona and the French national team.
He was born in Vernon. Dembele began his career at Rennes before joining Dortmund in 2016. He won the DFB-Pokal with die Borussen in the 2016–17 season, scoring a goal in the final.
