Borussia Dortmund maintain Ousmane Dembele suspension

Speculation mounted that the France forward was Camp Nou bound after he missed training without permission on Thursday.

Zorc insists the ongoing saga is not an issue for the rest of the squad as they continue preparations ahead of their Bundesliga opener against Wolfsburg on Saturday.

Borussia Dortmund have extended Ousmane Dembele's suspension indefinitely after the France global went AWOL this week in an attempt to force through a move to Barcelona. "Ousmane has the option to train individually apart from the group".

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that they have extended Ousmane Dembele's suspension "until further notice".

Our referenced source is suggesting that the decision was taken after a meeting between the Borussia Dortmund manager Peter Bosz, the chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke and the sporting director Michael Zorc.


The France worldwide is a target for the Catalans, along with Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho, as they aim to find a replacement for Neymar following his £200m move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Dortmund have now announced Dembele will be punished for his no-show and will be banned until after this Saturday's DFB-Pokal clash with Rielasingen-Arlen.

Dembele is under contract with Dortmund until 2021 and an initial offer from the Spanish giants has been rejected by Dortmund.

Dembele joined Dortmund a little over 12 months ago from Rennes on a five-year contract and has attracted top European suitors after a breakout season at the Westfalenstadion.
