Ousmane Dembele posts three-word Instagram message about Leeds after 1-1 v Brentford
Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele has shown his support for Leeds United after their 1-1 draw against Brentford on Tuesday night.
Liam Cooper’s goal rescued a point for the Whites, who had gone behind when Kiko Casilla gifted a goal to Brentford’s Said Benrahma.
Jean-Kevin Augustin made a brief appearance off the bench towards the end of the game and after full-time, the French striker took to his personal Instagram account to react to the result.
“Not letting go,” Augustin said. “We stay strong.”
Ian Poveda and Cooper were among those who replied to Augustin’s post but also among the replies was Barcelona’s £135.5million attacker Dembele.
The 22-year-old France international showed his support for Augustin’s new club as he left a comment saying: “Come on Leeds.”
Augustin and Dembele have played alongside each other for France’s Under-21s and it seems as though they created a friendship in that time.
Leeds are one of the biggest clubs in England and to have a France international who is playing for Barcelona cheering you on just goes to show the reach that the Yorkshire club has.
Maybe Dembele will put in a good word to Lionel Messi about how Leeds are doing in the Championship with his friend Augustin playing for them?
