Antoine Griezmann has been benched in the clash against Huesca on Sunday for 81 minutes before he sent on the pitch for Braithwaite.
The France international
was sent on the pitch nine minutes to the end whenBarcelona
had made plenty of attempts to score but failed.
Griezmann has recently lost the club’s managements’ trust as he fails to deliver. Last week, in the clash againstEibar
, the 29-year-old was replaced and he was not played in the battle againstReal Valladolid
. During crucial moments in facingReal Sociedad
, Griezmann was substituted again.
Barcelona has not got off to a right start this season as they struggle and they are personified by the Frenchman, who only met the back of the net three times in 15 matches he appeared in. Consequently, he climbed down the pecking order to behind
Notwithstanding having two injured players, Philippe Coutinho and Ansu Fati, there have not been any speculations regarding Griezmann’s regular start at the club.
