Paris Saint-Germain forward Ousmane Dembélé has spoken while on international duty about his recent form.

The forward says he’s arriving to the French national team at the UEFA European Championship in better form now due to better conditioning and a more understanding coach in his current club.

“I hope it will continue like this. [What’s helping me is] the preparation with the PSG staff: the physical trainers, the physios...”

“Luis Enrique has also given me rest in some games. Some I haven’t played, others I have been on the bench... That has helped me stay in shape all season.”

Dembélé’s comments have been interpreted as a barb thrown at his previous coach, Xavi.

“What has changed with Luis Enrique is that he has given me more freedom,” he said.

“At FC Barcelona I was more tied to the wing. With Luis Enrique I can play everywhere: as a 10 on the wings, as a false 9... I have had more freedom in the second half of the season. The coach has told me to move a little everywhere, except when I have to maintain my position on the wing.”
