  1. Moussa dembele isn’t correct. The moussa dembele from az isn’t the same moussa dembele from Lyon. The onze grom Lyon would have been 13 years old In fm10.

    1. The Dembele they are talking about IS the one from AZ. He was a forward back in that game.
      Kids these days.

  2. Janbenssens is 100% right, the Dembélé from FM10 that was AZ is the Belgian one who went to Fulham and Spurs and now plays for Guangzhou City.

    The one from Lyon is a different Dembélé, who is French.
