The relationship between the two Barcelona strikers has been reportedly a cold one. Antoine Griezmann's former adviser,
, went further to condemn Lionel Messi for his behavior toward Griezmann:
"Antoine arrived at a club where Messi has the final word on everything,"
"He is as much an emperor as a monarch and he didn't take kindly to the signing of Antoine.
"His attitude has been deplorable and he made him feel unwelcome. I've always disliked hearing Griezmann say that there are no issues with Messi but never the other way around. It's a reign of terror. You're either with him or against him.
"Griezmann is only going to try and solve his problems on the pitch, nothing more. He is never going to look to get into a conflict with anyone. He's not like that at all. And it's not that he lacks personality. He loves football and that's it, he doesn't want to get into arguments with anybody. I've seen him overcome so many difficult moments in his career.
"Last season, when Griezmann arrived, Messi didn't speak to him and didn't pass him the ball. I think he suffered because of a negative adaptation."
