Video: Barcelona fans make Ousmane Dembele feelings clear after introduction vs Napoli


 

The home support in attendance at Barcelona's meeting with SSC Napoli on Thursday were not at all shy in making their feelings regarding Ousmane Dembele known, following the contract rebel wide-man's 2nd-half introduction to proceedings.

Wide-man Dembele has of course seen his name take its place front and centre in the headlines once more over recent weeks.

This comes on the back of a heated public back-and-forth between club and player, which was expected to see the French international ultimately moved on in the lead-up to the winter transfer deadline.

In the end, however, ahead of the expiration of his contract at the Camp Nou this summer, Barcelona were unable to find a buyer for Dembele.

And those of a Blaugrana persuasion, or some of them at least, certainly don't appear all too willing to simply forgive and forget when it comes to the recent actions of their soon-to-be former attacker.

In turn, upon Dembele being introduced off the bench during the club's Europa League showdown with Italian giants Napoli this evening, a chorus of boos and whistles rang around the Camp Nou, footage of which can be seen below:

Torres cancels out Zielinski

Turning attentions towards the scoreline in Catalunya, as things stand, a crucial first-leg advantage remains very much up for grabs between Barca and Napoli.

It was the latter who took the lead in proceedings just shy of the half-hour mark, when Ferran Torres failing to capitalise on a golden opportunity at one end was swiftly followed by Piotr Zielinski slotting home at the other:

Xavi Hernandez's hosts, though, have since levelled things up, as Ferran Torres made no mistake 2nd time round, picking his spot from 12 yards to set up a tense close to proceedings at the Camp Nou.
