Former Bixente player Lizarazu warns Antoine Griezmann’s situation in Barca is very difficult. Griezmann is an outstanding player. He’s very good and a great factor in France.
But at Barca, things are completely opposite. Griezmann has a real problem. He came to Barca with passion with Lionel Messi. However, unfortunately there is no professional relationship between them.
Lizarazu also stressed that Griezmann’s situation in Barca is very dangerous and it is time for the striker to consider his future. Bleacher Report believes that Griezmann is no longer guaranteed to have a starting position in the Barca squad. In the last two matches, former Atletico star had to be in reserve.
In Barca’s 1-3 defeat to Real in the 7th round of La Liga, Griezmann was only allowed in the 81st minute. It is proof that the 29-year-old striker is not respected in Catalonia.
According to Goal, Griezmann thought of leaving the Camp Nou in the summer of 2020, before Lionel Messi’s shocking announcement changed everything. But in the end, Leo remained in Barca, making the former Atletico star disillusioned.
In his first year playing for Barca, Griezmann contributed only 15 goals to the club, an achievement that did not satisfy fans. In the 2020/21 season, the striker has yet to fire.
Spanish media announced that the French star wanted to return to Atletico. But CEO Angel Gil Marin of the Madrid representative immediately denied the information. He said that the Wanda Metropolitano team had a new project to develop Joao Felix.
Through the first 3 matches in La Liga, the former Atletico Madrid striker has not had any goals. Meanwhile, in the national team for the Nations League 2020. With the same number of matches above, he scored 2 goals against Ukraine and Croatia.
Barca is currently ranked 5th on the rankings with 7 points after 3 matches. Before being held by Sevilla with a score of 1-1 in the previous round, coach and coach Koeman had 5 consecutive victories including 3 friendly matches.
