Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez has showered encomiums on Ousmane Dembele following his impressive performances in recent weeks.

The French winger was unplayable against Real Sociedad scoring the winning goal as Barcelona ran out 1-0 winners in the Copa Del Rey.

He was also a menace for the Real Sociedad defenders in the encounter.

Xavi has reserved special praise for the former Dortmund star.

“He’s happy, enjoying himself, content, he’s important for me, for the group… he makes a difference, he assists, he scores, he’s a dagger and he’s in a good moment,” Xavi revelled

“He is a dagger,”

“I see him happy. He is lethal. He has tremendous conditions.

“He’s one of the best in his position in the world.

I’m very happy for him. He has turned the tables and it is not easy at Barcelona.

“We have given him confidence. I believe in him a lot, very much. “Today his game is extraordinary.”

Dembele has now scored eight goals and recorded six assists for Barcelona in all competitions this season.

The victory sends Barcelona to the last four of the Copa Del Rey.
