Griezmann failed to live up to expectations in Barcelona.
president Enrique Cerezo has praised former striker Antoine Griezmann.
After shining at Atletico Madrid and playing brilliant games for the team, Griezmann finally left Atletico for Barca, but at the Camp Nou he could not repeat the brilliance he had at Madrid. Now Cerezo has praised the French star and talked about the possibility of his return to Atletico.
“Any team would be crazy about having Griezmann,”
“He’s a magnificent player and I hope to get him back, but I don’t think Barcelona want to sell him. He’s had magnificent seasons here and was built at Atletico.”
Atletico's attacking line currently consists of Luis Suarez and Joao Felix, and if they want to sign Griezmann, one of the two stars will have to leave Atletico. However, Cerezo stressed that the Portuguese star will not leave the club in any way.
“There’s no option for him to leave,”
“He has to adapt. The day he takes off will be one of the most important in the world of football. Players aren’t machines, they have good and bad days. He’ll give many afternoons of glory to this club.”
