  • Ousmane Dembele left Barcelona earlier in the summer in quite controversial circumstances
  • The 26-year-old forward has struggled to find his feet since making the switch to PSG
  • Fans have reacted to the current struggle of the French forward

French giant Paris Saint Germain continued their less than impressive start to life under new manager Luis Enrique as they fell to their first defeat at the Parc des Princes to a Ligue 1 challenger, OGC Nice.

The French club, who were pegged to the canvas for most part of the game by the sensational Terrem Moffi, came close on a few occasions to levelling the scoreline and stealing a victory.

Despite Kylian Mbappe and Moffi stealing the headlines in the box office showing at the French Capital, it was the missed opportunities of former Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele that had pundits and fans alike singing a different tune. The French forward's goal drought continued, and his glaring miss in the 38th minute undoubtedly did little to boost his confidence.

Dembele, whose move to PSG from Barcelona was one of the summer's most controversial transfers, as reported by Goal, seems to have irked fans of his former Catalan club, who wasted no time in criticising the forward due to his persistently poor form.

Fans react to Dembele's form

Dembele who featured for the fourth time for Luis Enrique's side as reported by Whoscored, saw his dreadful display met with a flurry of reactions from fans.

@PSGprotector Tweeted:

'0 goals, 0 assists, 4 matches, it's getting closer'

@vinijr_fc reacted:

'Lmaooo ,i promise u he's getting injured at 005'

@ayahya063 displayed with the forward's display, tweeted:

'What’s this man?😭😭😭’

@notanfootyfan stated:

‘I don't know why we signed both of these lads, I was so against it and I was hoping that the signing won’t go through lol’

A few PSG Fans appear to be running out of patience with their new summer signing, and @everythingpsg32 tweeted:

‘I'll give them a total of 10 matches before I turn on them’

Dembele would hope he can turn the tides around at the French Capital when they host German giants Borussia Dortmund in Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League opener.

Dembele’s terrible miss during PSG versus Nice

Sports Brief in a previous report stated Ousmane Dembele's astonishing miss during Paris Saint-Germain clash against Nice has taken the internet by storm, quickly going viral on social media.

The 26-year-old managed to spurn a golden chance wide from ten yards with an open goal at his mercy.

It would have been an equaliser for the French champions, who were trailing 1-0 to the unbeaten Nice side in the 28th minute.
