The comparison with Tuchel was apparently silent. "The thing has not even increased," says Mislintat. "I was told only at a certain point, I should no longer emerge in the team coaching and team environment, there has never been a real dispute".
So Dembele landed at the BVB
When asked of Ousmane Dembele, Mislintat enters ecstasy.
"I saw, he had not even played with the Stade Rennes in the first team, and I bet he could not tell which foot he used in certain situations, because he simply did not think about it: This is a very special player," Mislintat explained.
Although Dembelé has been involved in the dispute, Mislintat emphasizes that we must not forget that "the action of Ousmane was our choice of games" and "was largely responsible for the victory of the 2017 UEFA Cup".
