Barca fume at Dembele

Barcelona officials are unhappy with Ousmane Dembele after he failed to report for training on Thursday.

Dembele was suffering from gastroenteritis but failed to tell the club.

Backroom staff were trying to contact the France star for an hour and a half before he eventually got in touch.

Dembele has been in better form this season after a difficult first campaign at the club.

Carlos makes Vinicius claim

Roberto Carlos has claimed Vinicius Junior will make football history.

The youngster has been involved in the Real Madrid first team under Santiago Solari.

He scored after coming off the bench against Real Valladolid and then got an assist in the Champions League against Viktoria Plzen.

Vinicius, 18, joined Real in the summer from Flamengo in a deal worth €46 million, the largest amount ever received for a player for a Brazilian club.

And Carlos, now an ambassador at Real Madrid, thinks he has a big future in the game.

“I always hope that the Brazilian players that come to Europe are among the best,” said Roberto Carlos.

“Vinicius is very young and left Flamengo already with a lot of experience. It was great for him to play against Plzen. He will make history in Real Madrid and in world football.

“He is a modern player, able to dribble, responsible, consistent and complete.”

Beckham wants Griezmann

David Beckham is keen to bring Antoine Griezmann to MLS with his new side in Miami.

Griezmann has expressed a desire to make the move to the US, and Beckham hopes something can be done.

“It’s always nice to have great players want to come and play for our team,” Beckham told ESPN FC.

“He’s such a great player. I’m a fan of his, he’s a fan of mine, so maybe one day he will be gracing the building in Miami and that’s what we want.”
