  • France international Ousmane Dembele has turned his football around at FC Barcelona this season
  • Ousmane Demebele played key role in Barcelona's 5-1 triumph over Viktoria Plzen last Wednesday
  • Many football fans on social media have attributed Dembele's rise in top form to his marriage

Ousmane Dembele's footballing turnaround in the Barcelona team is regarded as one of the best redemption curves in the world of football in recent years.

The 25-year-old joined the Catalan giants in 2017 from Borussia Dortmund with a tsunami of fan hype and optimism after an eye-watering £112.5 million deal.

In the subsequent years, the tricky winger has failed to live up to the lofty expectations many fans and pundits had of him due to consistent injuries and little production.

Six months ago, Dembele's chances of staying with the Camp Nou outfit beyond the summer were slim after he was labeled an outcast by the management of Barcelona.

Xavi Hernandez however kept faith in the Frenchman and it appears that decision has clearly paid off.

After finishing last season as the top assist provider in La Liga, Dembele is on top of his game as he has shown flashes of sheer genius for the Catalonia faithful.

He already has two assists to his name in Spanish topflight this season and added two more last Wednesday in Barcelona's 5-1 victory at home to Viktoia Plzen in the UEFA Champions League.

He also had a hand in six key passes, according to StatmanDave.

With Dembele looking like a footballer renewed, many Barcelona fans have attributed his rise in form to his marriage.

Dembele got married to beautiful Moroccan TikToker Rima Edbouche back in December 2021.

He has been truly unstoppable since then, with a 71 goal involvements in 155 games, as he is now on his way to having another remarkable campaign.

Below are what some fans said on Twitter:
