Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele revealed to be massive Leeds fan by Patrick Bamford

Bamford was stunned when Leeds’ France Under-21 goalkeeper Illan Meslier asked him for his shirt after Leeds’ last game against Fulham because he wanted it for Dembele.

Meslier explained that Dembele wanted his and Kalvin Phillips’ jerseys because he loves Leeds and watches all their games.

The Leeds striker asked for one of Dembele’s Barca shirts in exchange and Meslier video called him late one night this week from France’s Clairefontaine training base to show him the signed jersey.
