PSG boss says his ex-Barcelona winger is ‘unstoppable’ ahead of UCL clash

Paris Saint-Germain boss Luis Enrique has said that former Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele is technically impossible to stop.

The 26-year-old, who has scored just one goal this season while providing 13 assists across all competitions, has been an important figure in the first team fold since leaving Barcelona for his home country,

Speaking after his side’s 1-0 win over Rennes in the French Cup semi-final, Enrique spoke on different subjects, including his take on Dembele, the UEFA Champions League tie against Barcelona as well as an update on Warren Zaire-Emery.

“Next week we will prepare for the match. Today we had…
