  • Ousmane Dembele has struggled for form since completing his transfer to Paris Saint-Germain
  • The French forward is yet to find the back of the net for his new club
  • Teammate Kylian Mbappe has trolled the former Barcelona man in a viral interview

Since his €50 million transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, Ousmane Dembele has struggled to find the back of the net.

The 26-year-old former Barcelona forward is yet to score a goal for his new club despite accumulating over 800 minutes of playing time.

According to statistics from Whoscored, the 2018 World Cup winner has been directly involved in just two goals in his 12 appearances for the Ligue 1 club.

Dembele's difficulty in scoring goals has occasionally made him the target of trolling from fans on social media. However, his teammate Kylian Mbappe took this trolling to another level during a viral interview at an event.

Mbappe's playful dig at Dembele

Mbappe, known for his playful and lighthearted demeanour, continued in the same spirit by playfully teasing Dembele. During an event organised by the OneSight foundation, which aims to provide eye tests for 1,000 underprivileged children, Mbappe humorously suggested that Dembele might need glasses to improve his scoring ability.

Quoted by PSG Report, Mbappe jokingly remarked,

"Who could I give glasses to? Oh well, I could give some to Ousmane Dembélé; it would help him score (laughs). With questions like that, the best thing is to shoot your friends (laughs)."

Fans have however wasted little time to react to the troll from Mbappe.

@Jaylorbbb24 reacted:

"Why is Kylian like this 😂😂😂😂."

@onzball10, relishing the humour, commented:

"No my goat is so funny💀💀🤣🤣"

@messitbvb trolling Dembele commented:

"He cooked him 😭💀'

@NaziCringe also wrote:

"He should've said that about Kolo Muani."

@journey_snow123 posted:

"Even Mbappe sees it; he is a really good player, but his shooting is beyond atrocious."

As Dembele continues his quest for his first goal with PSG this season, French fans will be hoping he can break his goal drought against Montpellier.

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.
