Ousmane Dembele Turns Up Late For Training Yet Again

Much to the annoyance of Ronald Koeman,Ousmane Dembele was late for training on Monday.

The former Borussia Dortmund winger has had his fair share of disciplinary problems since making a £136 million to Barcelona and they don't look like stopping.

According to Deportes Cuatro the Frenchman arrived at the club's training complex at 10.15am on Monday morning - 15 minutes later than he was supposed to after Koeman told players to be there one hour early.

He also had his mobile in hand while driving.

Dembele, linked with Manchester United, has not started a game for the club since he was forced off with an injury against former club Dortmund in November and was a 70th minute substitute in Koeman's first game in charge - a 4-0 win over Villarreal at the weekend.

Reports of him being late have been a regular occurence. In fact, in November 2018, Dembele missed a training session due to a late night of gaming with his friends and it led Barca to believe he was suffering from a gaming disorder.

On one occasion Dembele could not be contacted for over "an hour and a half", while he also turned up late for a game against Real Betis in December 2018.

Players who aren't selected for the squad are normally required to turn up 15 to 45 minutes before the start of the match but Dembele did not adhere to that rule.

In order to bring a stop to his poor timekeeping, Barcelona reportedly introduced a new rule whereby he would not be able to turn his phone off or even have it on silent overnight.

However, as per the latest instance, it seems as though Dembele is back to his old habits and once again his future at the Nou camp is in question.

Dembele has made 74 appearances for Barca, scoring 19 times.
