Success in Barcelona depends on Griezmann himself

Tue 17 November 2020 | 16:59

French midfielder Blaise Matuidi has claimed that the situation will finally be in Antoine Griezmann's favor in Barcelona.

 It was the summer of 2019 that Griezmann, after many struggles, finally responded positively to Barcelona's offer and left Atletico Madrid for the team. But Griezmann has yet to repeat his past brilliance at the Nou Camp, and his French team-mate Blaise Matuidi believes that will eventually happen.

 Rumor has it that a poor relationship with Barça star Lionel Messi has so far been the cause of Griezmann's downfall, but others have blamed tactical issues on his failure.

The international team-mate of Griezmann told beIN Sports: “We know that in Barcelona it is not the same because he is not in a position that he likes.

“It is up to him to adapt because it is the mark of big clubs. We all know the situation with Lionel Messi, who takes up a lot of space. I know Antoine will hang on and eventually find his position.”

The former Juventus midfielder added about moving to MLS: “A call from David Beckham? It went a bit like that.

“Beckham is someone I knew at PSG. I already knew him and the connection was easily made by phone.

“At first I was a little hesitant but when they came back this year, for me, it was obvious. I wanted to seize this opportunity because I think I have done a lot of things during my career in Europe and I wanted to discover something else.

“And when this challenge arrived with Miami, with MLS, with the age that I am today, for me it was the right moment to jump at the opportunity. And today I am very fulfilled.”
