Griezmann losing prominence

Mon 04 January 2021 | 12:19

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

Antoine Griezmann

was sent on the pitch nine minutes to the end when

Barcelona

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 against

Eibar

, the 29-year-old was replaced and he was not played in the battle against

Real Valladolid

. During crucial moments in facing

Real Sociedad

and

Valencia

, 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

Martin Braithwaite

.

Notwithstanding having two injured players, Philippe Coutinho and Ansu Fati, there have not been any speculations regarding Griezmann’s regular start at the club.
