FC Barcelona has reported in its Twitter account that Ousmane Dembélé will undergo surgery in Turku to treat a rupture to the proximal tendon of his right hamstring.

Doctor Sakari Orava will be in charge of fixing the right leg of the French striker. He is the same doctor who operated on Dembélé in 2017, when he had the same injury, but on the other leg.

Sakari Orava is a prestigious doctor, admired worldwide, whose hands have passed the great stars of world sport.

Athletes such as Haile Gebreselassie, Frank Fredericks, David Beckham, Marco van Basten, Didier Deschamps and Pep Guardiola have been treated by the Finnish doctor.

In his nearly 47 years as a doctor, more than 20,000 cases have passed through his hands.
