Braithwaite even said Dembele was more important than Lewandowski, although he did prove the Pole. Braithwaite said: “He has scored a lot of goals and I’m happy for him, he’s a great professional. I wish him well all season but now I’m here to win at Espanyol. “
As for Dembele, he said he was a very good lad, “I like him a lot, he has a lot of talent, I’ve never met someone like that. Messi is another thing, but I’ve never met him. People like Dembele.”
Braithwaite said the Spaniard’s offer came at the right time and that staying at Barcelona was a decisive factor because his family loved it there and it was important to continue living there.
