Griezmann interview in France attracts Barcelona's response

Laliga giants FC Barcelona has given a response to Antoine Griezmann interview with Jorge Valdano on Movistar+’s Universo Valdano.

In the interview, the Frenchman asked for time and support from the Barca fans in his adaption at Camp Nou after joining them in the summer of 2019.

The club has responded by posting an image of Griezmann smiling during a training session on its French-language social media account, alongside the message “we are united”.

The player has struggled under new manager Ronald Koeman and his life hasn’t been the same at Camp Nou with the club having gone under a lot of changes.

The Frenchman won no trophies in his first season where he scored 15 goals from 48 games, contributing four assists. The previous season, at Atletico Madrid, he registered 21 goals and ten assists from the same number of games.

He was part of the Barca team that lost to his former employers over the weekend with the result leaving them in 12th place on the league log. They are currently 12 points behind La Liga leaders Real Sociedad and just four clear of bottom-placed Celta Vigo.

With Messi out of the team, Griezmann is expected to play a huge role in their midweek Champions League tie against Dynamo Kyiv.
