Griezmann admits he'll have to adjust to fit in at Barcelona

Barcelona new signing Antoine Griezmann has admitted he'll have to adjust to fit into Barcelona's playing style. 

The former Atletico Madrid star recently completed the long-awaited £107m move a month after announcing he will the Madrid side early in May. 

The 28-year-old has now admitted he will have to change his playing style the same way he did while at Madrid in order to fit into the system. 

"I will adjust the way I did at Atletico," said Griezmann, who is in Tokyo with Barcelona ahead of their match with Chelsea on Tuesday.

"I like this style and I know I can contribute many things," he said.

He further went on to reveal how happy he was to sign for the Spanish champions, having come close last year before deciding to commit at Madrid. 

"I called my father and I started crying with joy because the transfer was all done, it all was over. I was with my friends, with my wife, with my children and it was an incredible moment," 

Griezmann scored 133 goals in 257 appearances for Atletico after signing from Real Sociedad in 2014 and was arguably their best player over the years.
