Report details the exact punishments that Barcelona can hand Ousmane Dembele

Ousmane Dembele is set for punishment from Barcelona.

Ousmane Dembele was supposed to be the shining light of Barcelona's future but he's instead become one of the most frustrating players around.

The Frenchman joined in the wake of Neymar's massive move to Paris Saint-Germain after a brilliant season with Borussia Dortmund but injury initially halted his progress.

Since then, however, his career at Camp Nou has been a mix of trouble and brilliance.

This season has seen Dembele score six and set up another three in a little over 800 La Liga minutes and yet there's talk that the club are at the end of their tether.

Being late to training, late to games, not mixing with his teammates, and worries over a video game addiction have left Barca wondering if it's all worth it.

Dembele scored one and set up another against Espanyol on Saturday before reportedly showing up to training on Sunday two hours late.

That's so late that he essentially trained on his own as the rest of the team was all but done.

And as Barca consider what to do with Dembele, a report from Sport has outlined exactly what disciplinary action can be taken in line with an agreement between La Liga and the Players' Union.

If Dembele is more than ten minutes late twice in the same month, or just late five times in a month, Barcelona can decide to suspend him from anywhere between two to ten days and fine him 13% of his monthly salary.

Ousmane Dembele has been in good form for Barca, despite his troubles.

But if things are more serious - late three times over 20 minutes, or just five times in a month - then Barca are legally allowed to suspend the player for up to a month AND fine him up to 35% of his monthly wage.

It's difficult to understand exactly why Dembele isn't putting more effort in when the punishments are spelt out like that.

Not behaving professionally could cost him time, money, and most importantly, his chance at a club like Barcelona.
