It is believed it could be even longer if his recovery does not go as expected and this may result to Dembele missing some features for Barcelona.
Apparently, Dembele will have more tests on Tuesday which is when a decision on his treatment plan will be made.
When asked about Dembele’s injury, Barcelona coach said: “I can’t say much about this because it’s bad luck that he got injured. These are things that must be accepted and analyzed but now we are on vacation and thinking about the next season, they are things that must be accepted.”
