Ousmane Dembele to miss 'some time' after injury on league debut for Barca

Barcelona completed the comeback vs. Getafe and remain perfect in La Liga courtesy of new-signing Paulinho's strike late on. Ernesto Valverde maintains record signing Ousmane Dembele still needs more time to adapt with Barcelona.

BARCELONA -- Barcelona face an anxious wait to discover the severity of the injury that forced Ousmane Dembele to hobble out of Saturday's 2-1 victory over Getafe.

Dembele, making his first start in La Liga, fell to the ground clutching his hamstring after sprinting for the ball just after the 20-minute mark.

Barcelona's record signing immediately signalled to the bench that he would be unable to continue and was replaced by Gerard Deulofeu.

A club statement soon after read: "Ousmane Dembele has a hamstring injury in his left leg, more tests are needed to find out the extent of the injury."

Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde admitted after the game that Dembele is "going to have to spend some time on the sidelines."

"It's a muscle problem," Valverde added. "We think it's a tear, but we will do more tests tomorrow.

"It's a shame because he was just getting up to scratch with the team's dynamic. We hope he won't be out for a long time."

The Catalan club paid an initial €105 million to sign Dembele from Borussia Dortmund in August, although that could rise to €145m with add-ons.

The France international made his debut as a substitute in last weekend's 5-0 win against Espanyol at the Camp Nou, providing the assist for Luis Suarez's stoppage-time goal.

He then made his full debut in the midweek victory over Juventus in the Champions League and kept his place at Getafe.

Speaking about the expectation surrounding the 20-year-old on Friday, Valverde called for patience.

"He's getting better in training all the time, but we'll see how he does competitively," he said. "We hope he's going to keep giving us more and more. You always ask about him, but we have to give him time."

BREAKING NEWS: Another Coach sacked in England

The wave of sacking in England has claimed another big casualty as the hammer has fallen on another gaffer.

Birmingham City

have sacked manager Harry Redknapp following a run of six defeats in eight Championship matches this season. 

Saturday's 3-1 home defeat to Preston North End proved the final straw for the club, who announced the decision shortly after full-time.

Redknapp was appointed in April and helped the Blues narrowly avoided relegation from the second tier last term.

But they now sit just one spot above bottom-placed Bolton and have lost six straight matches in all competitions. Former Everton midfielder Lee Carsley, part of Redknapp's backroom staff, will

Something is beginning to annoy Neymar at Paris Saint-Germain

There’s an argument to be made that the best attacking trio in world football right now doesn’t come from La Liga.

We haven’t seen enough of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele to pass judgement, while Karim Benzema’s hamstring injury means it could be some time before BBC - Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo - take to the stage together for Real Madrid.

There are no such problems at the Parc des Princes, however, where Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe have torn through every defence they’ve faced this season.

Already this season, the three forwards have combined to score 16 goals for Paris Saint-Germain.

So PSG’s decision to splash the cash on Neymar and Mbappe in the summer already looks justified.

The Parisiens made Neymar the most expensive player in history when they paid Barcelona £198 million for the Brazilian, while Mbappe’s initial loan move from AS Monaco will become a £168m permanent deal in 2018.

Despite the early success - PSG have won all five Ligue 1 matches and destroyed Celtic in the Champions League this week - trouble could be on the horizon, if SFR Sport are to be believed.

Why Neymar is getting annoyed
There are many mouths to feed at PSG and it’s claim that Neymar is beginning to become irritated at not being the number one penalty taker.

That honour is instead bestowed upon Cavani, who scored from the spot in the 5-0 win over Celtic on Tuesday.

Watch: Cavani doesn't let Neymar take PSG penalty
There was an incident last month in PSG’s match against St. Etienne when Neymar was caught seemingly asking Cavani if he could take a penalty, with the Uruguayan refusing.

Yet much has been made about Neymar’s quest to win the Ballon d’Or and SFR Sport claim he has privately been complaining about being behind Cavani in the pecking order, thus denying him the chance to add some extra goals to his tally.

Messi would let Neymar take penalties at Barcelona
Back in 2015, Neymar said he was left “speechless” when Messi let him take a penalty in Barcelona’s 8-0 win over Cordoba.

“It's a detail I will never forget,” the Brazil international said, per Sport.

“He could have scored a hat-trick, but he left the penalty to me. It left me without words. I learn a lot from him, both on and off the pitch.”
It doesn’t seem as if Cavani will be quite so accommodating.

Getafe Fans Chant ‘Neymar’ But Then This Happened

There were some worried faces in the visitors section of the Coliseum Alfonso Perez Stadium on Saturday evening when Getafe took the lead and the fans started chanting: “Neymar! Neymar!” But then, this happened! Did you see it?

The Bluagrana saw their perfect start to La Liga season come under threat when Gaku Shibasaki managed to put Getafe in front just before the break.

It was a lead that sparked the home fans to chant Neymar’s name around the arena, but a half an hour later, Denis Suarez’s equalizer saw their songs subside.

A draw seemed destined to be shared between the two teams, but Paulinho, who was the first signing after Neymar’s exit, stepped up and scored a beautiful strike to claim all three points for Barcelona.

‘People Have Called Me Gay, Spoilt Brat & Mummy’s Boy’ – Actress Bukky Wright’s Son

Bukky Wright’s son, Ojayy Wright has dropped a piece for those who insult him, and according to him it really hurts. According to the Nollywood actress’ son, those who are hating on him are all doing that because he’s privileged.

However he went further to disclose that what bothers him is that, the people who are supposed to have his back, are the ones who ignite the insults.

Here’s what he wrote;

‘They have insulted me and my person. They have called me names, from gay to a spoilt brat, even mummy’s boy. They say my own is too much. They don’t wanna give me a chance because of my background. That I am privileged and that is why they hate on and try to block me. You see, the insults n negative vibes thrown at me don’t bother me, I have dealt with it since elementary school. What bothers me though, is that the people that are supposed to have your back are the ones that begin these stories n lies and that poo HURTS’.

‘I know I have made a lot of mistakes, and I accept full responsibility and honestly, I am working on myself and learning everyday. I apologize for any of my actions that may have offended anyone directly or indirectly because if you really know me, you will know that I am just a HAPPY CHILD, nothing else. But I won’t apologize for my background or whatever yeye privileges people think I have because This Life is hard for US ALL, NO exception. poo ain’t always rosey but we still thank God for his grace n mercy over our lives. In other words, I just wanna say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone supporting me and my music right now (cos that’s just all I wanna do, really. I’m not here to fight or drag anything with anyone) From the tv stations to the radio stations, the Dj’s, friends, fans, and people sef! I really appreciate and love you all.’
