“I would say that I learned a lot [at Barca], on and off the field, thanks to my coaches, but also to the great friends I made there. I don’t know everyone, but I know a lot of people. I learned a lot there.”

Dembele also revealed he is still in touch with several of his former Barcelona team-mates

“I saw Koundé during the international break,” he added. But it will be a great match. I also call Gavi, even though he is injured. We often talk to each other before matches.”

The Frenchman has scored just once for PSG so far since his summer move but has weighed in with nine assists in all competitions.
