Barcelona’s France forward Ousmane Dembele has been ruled out for over two months with his third muscle injury of the season, the latest chapter in a career marred by repeated fitness troubles.

A statement from the Catalan club Friday said Dembele, 22, had injured his right hamstring and would be sidelined for approximately 10 weeks.

The Frenchman was in tears as he hobbled off in the first half of Barca’s 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League Wednesday.

Dembele signed for Barca from Dortmund in 2017 for 105m euros ($115.73m) but his debut season was marred by a hamstring problem which required surgery and kept him out for more than five months.

He has made only five starts in all competition this term and will miss next month’s "Clasico" against Real Madrid plus the revamped Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia in January.
