“All these ugly faces just so you can play PES, aren’t you ashamed?” Dembele allegedly said to Griezmann.

“What kind of language is that?”

Dembele also shared a statement on Instagram in his attempt to clarify his remarks and expressed his remorse towards the hotel staff.

“In recent days, a private video dating in 2019 has circulated on social networks,” wrote Dembele.

“The scene takes place in Japan, but it could have taken place anywhere on the planet and I would have used the same expressions.

“These expressions were not directed towards any particular community. Sometimes I use these types of expressions in private, with friends, regardless of their origin.
