Dembele: I’m Not Substitute Neymar
Barcelona’s new winger Ousmane Dembele refused to be likened to new star PSG Neymar.
Barcelona released the captain of the Brazilian national team, with transfer benderol of 222 million euros. La Blaugrana then made Dortmund’s attackers a potential successor to the players, with them hoping the player could fill the void left by the Brazilian national team star.
But Dembele dismisses all such comparisons, and states that his level of play is still far from the level of the game shown by Neymar.
“There’s a big difference between Neymar and me, Neymar is one of the best players in the world, while I’m still very young, I’m trying to improve my performance every day, and I’m trying to grow.”
“I did not come to replace Neymar. They need a player for this position, they call me, and I will give everything to this club. I’m 20 years old, I still have a lot to learn, and that’s why I’m in this big club. “
