Ousmane Dembele is a species in extinction in the world of football. He does unexpected things, he is bold and different. But also because of the fact he is equally as good with his right and left foot. He defines himself as a left footer, but he learnt to his right foot to the point that he can use both. "I like driving with the left and shooting with the right. I'm left footed, but I take penalties with my right; I shoot better with it."
At BeSoccer Pro we have had a look at how ambidextrous he is and the result is perfect: of his 27 Barca goals, he has scored 14 with his right foot and 13 with his left. None with his head or any other body part.
You do not have to go far back for proof of this: he beat Bono with a brilliant left footed shot across the keeper on Saturday and then scored past Vaclik with a right footed effort on Wednesday. Seeing how he strikes the ball, nobody could tell you which is his stronger foot.
This season, nevertheless, he is using his right foot more than ever before given that he has scored seven with it and just two with his left (against Sevilla and Betis). In the 2019-20 campaign, he scored 6 and 8 respectively and it was 1 and 3 in 2018-19. We are mentioning his right foot first in all years.
