Ousmane Dembele opens up on his improved form this season.
The Barcelona winger got his first assist against Australia in their World Cup opener.
He featured in the 2018 World Cup winning France team but failed to register any goal or assist in the tournament.
The attacker speaks about his recent improvements and admits he didn’t have the healthiest habits in his early days.
He told RMC Sport: “Lots of things. I had some difficult years. When you compare the match from 2018 and Tuesday’s match, there are lots of changes. I am coming into the tournament off the back of a year-and-a-half without an injury.
“I have aged, and become more mature both in my game and off the pitch. I am ambitious. I want to start matches. I want to be a key player at this World Cup. I want to score and to create goals.”
“I think between the age of 19 and 25, you change. I think we have to erase this question because things have changed. It wasn’t how people might have thought. But it’s true that I am more mature and more responsible.”
