Barcelona are persisting in their mission to rehabilitate Ousmane Dembele and Ernesto Valverde is pleased with the player's evolution, believing that the Frenchman has taken a notable step ahead despite green shoots still showing from time.
The problems that exist are nothing football-related and are to do with his personal life and behavior, however Valverde demand that the forward is a smart child.
That doesn't seem to be up for dialogue, he has no enemies and everyone desires him to succeed, however the club, his coach and teammates are clear when they say their opinion that something has got to change.
Nightlife seems to be the most downside, tho' not what instantly springs to mind with that word.
While Neymar spent his evenings taking part in poker, Dembele enjoys enjoying video games and watching tv series and he remains fastened on a screen till the early hours of the morning, that is his main issue.
On Sunday he slept in again and, once more, turned up 2 hours late for training and also the club are insistent that they'll take measures, with the player no longer allowed to switch off his phone or perhaps leave it on silent throughout the night.
The club are tightening down on Dembele in the hopes that their 150 million euros will not attend waste and the 200,000 euros fine handed to the player will, hopefully, be felt.
