Ousmane Dembele heckled by fans on return to Barcelona with PSG

Former Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele has been heckled by supporters on his return to the city with Paris Saint-Germain.

The PSG team jetted in on Monday for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie, with fans heard hurling insults at Dembele when he got off the team bus.

Dembele angered some sections of the support with his decision to quit Barca for PSG last summer after previously having said he didn’t understand why there was so much talk about a move to the French side.

Xavi was asked about Dembele ahead of the game at his pre-match press conference and insisted he held no bad feeling towards his former player.

“What happened with Ousmane made me feel bad because he was in an extraordinary moment here. I don’t hold any grudge against him and tomorrow I will greet him with all respect. I have a lot of affection for him,” he told reporters.

Dembele scored against Barcelona in the first leg, although the goal was just the second time he’s netted for PSG since his summer move.
