What Dembele said for red card

FC Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele was sent off in controversial circumstances against Sevilla on Sunday and what he said to the referee that could rule him out of the Clasico has now been revealed.

Miguel Antonio Mateu Lahoz sent off Dembele late on in Barcelona's 4-0 victory over Sevilla for the Frenchman's reaction to debutant Ronald Araujo's red card.
 
 
"I don't know what he said," head coach Enesto Valverde said when asked for his opinion, as per Marca. "But I don't think it was too long a sentence.
 
"With the Araujo dismissal on his debut, it didn't seem like a foul to me. Then the Dembele one is a mystery."
 
However, the referee report has revealed what 2018 FIFA World Cup winner uttered to leave his participation against Real this month in major doubt.

"Very bad, you're very bad," is what the report claims the player said, while adding that he was making a gesture with his arms.
 
While it's a far cry from the insults allegedly uttered by Diego Costa last season to earn him an eight-match ban, there is precedent that could see Dembele banned for more than the one automatic match.
 
Last season, Deportivo La Coruna's Michael Krohn-Dehli said the same thing in a second division game and was given a two-game suspension.
