08:00 GMT: Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez has said Ousmane Dembele has been an ‘exemplary professional’ since taking over after reinstating the France striker following a stalemate over his contract renewal.

I haven’t had a single problem with him and I’ve heard all kinds of things. That he hasn’t been professional, that he doesn’t take care of himself… it’s the opposite.
