Ousmane Dembele was unveiled in front of 18,000 Barcelona fans – but then struggled to do the simplest of tricks.
The 20-year-old Frenchman was wearing the No 11 jersey vacated by Neymar. But he didn’t much resemble the Brazilian.
The Frenchman’s protracted £96 million move from Borussia Dortmund was officially ratified after a summer-long on-off saga.
Dembele signed on at the Nou Camp complete with a £369m buy-out clause.
He said: “I’m really pleased to form part of the Barca family.
“I have always wanted to play for Barca since I was a kid. I watched all their matches.
“I’m really happy to now be part of the best club in the world with the best players in the world. I hope to win lots of trophies and titles here.
“I’m hoping forward to a good year, a successful year and looking forward to playing here in this stadium.
“Visca Barca, visca Catalunya.”
