Luis Figo has proclaimed that he sees himself in Barcelona ace Ousmane Dembele.
He has hailed Dembele for being the players who reminds him of himself.
Figo told Marca:“If you have to ask me for a player that reminds me of the way I played, I’ll say that I really like Dembele.
“He’s had bad luck with injuries, but he has enormous potential.
“Then there are others like [Serge] Gnabry at Bayern Munich; he’s very good, young. They play as a winger and I like their self-confidence when it comes to one-v-ones.
Ansu Fati has also started like that. They’re players that I like because they like to take risks and they have no fear. And that’s important for teams that play with wingers.
“I also like [Cristian] Portu at Real Sociedad.”
Figo has further spoken about rumours revolving Lionel Messi leaving Barcelona next year – and he believes that will happen.
“I watched the thing with Messi and his attempt to leave Barcelona this summer like all football fans: expectantly and surprised,” Figo said as a guest at the MARCA Sport Weekend.
“He’ll have his motives and reasons for making that decision. I don’t know what happened beforehand.
“Every club wants to have a player like Messi, but then it depends on factors like the current financial situation at the club, the money he’ll cost the club in wages, the will of the player…
“But generally, in life, if you don’t want to be somewhere, in the end there’s nothing that can change your mind.”
