  • Real Madrid's Eduardo Camavinga was injured during training with the French national team
  • Camavinga collided with Ousmane Dembele, leaving many Madrid fans blaming the PSG star
  • Dembele has been mocked online for his role in the incident but Barcelona fans praised him

Ousmane Dembele may want to avoid all Real Madrid supporters for the time being.

The Paris Saint-Germain attacker is not the most popular person among the Los Blancos fanbase after he inadvertently injured Eduardo Camavinga.

The duo collided during a training session with the French national team, with Camavinga injuring his knee in the aftermath.

As noted by ESPN, the Real Madrid star will return to Spain for further tests. More scans will be conducted at the club’s training complex to see the extent of the injury.

While the incident was just an accidental clash between two national team players, the La Liga giants' fans don’t see it that way.

Many took to social media to criticise the French attacker, believing he was purposely trying to damage a former rival. Dembele played for Madrid’s rivals, Barcelona before moving to France.


"Let his country down in the World Cup final and then injured Camavinga. We all hate Ousmane Dembele."


"That clumsy boy Usman Dembele can be seen smiling right after the tackle as well🤦."

While the Madrid fans were left fuming, those who support Barcelona had reason to be smug about the incident.


"At least Dembele has an assist for Barca."

Others were just amused that, for once, Dembele wasn’t the one picking up an injury. The former Barcelona star has developed a reputation for being injury-prone throughout his career.


"Dembele's injury-prone thing might be contagious..."

Camavinga injured during training

As Sports Brief has previously reported, Real Madrid have a new injury concern to stress over in the coming weeks.

Camavinga had to leave the French team’s camp with a potential knee injury after colliding with Dembele in training.

Arda Guler, Thibaut Courtois, and Eder Militao are just some of the other Los Blancos stars who are currently injured.
