Barcelona defender insists that Griezmann is among the best players in the world despite his poor form in Barca.
has talked about his teammate
insisting that he is an important player forBarcelona
and he is considered among the best players in the world.
Despite Lenglet’s claims, Griezmann has not been in his best form as he enters Euro 2020, having scored only 13 goals for Barcelona in the season. Griezmann hasn’t been able to show his full quality since leaving Atletico Madrid and joining Barcelona in 2019.
Griezmann and Lenglet are expected to play an important role in Didier Deschamps’ team in Euro 2020 despite Griezmann’s unreliable performances. But Lenglet still believes that Griezmann is going to be better in 2021 and that he is an important player for his national team and club, no matter what the pundits say about him.
“He is a very important player for Barca, who made us change games on the right wing, especially in the Copa del Rey”,
he told an interview with L’Equipe, as reported viaMarca
“He has the label of the best player in the world and the standards are very high for him.
“He has not always been judged reasonably.”
Griezmann’s contract will expire in three years, but since Koeman has brought competition for him by signing Sergio Aguero and the possible transfer of Memphis Depay, he is going to be under pressure in the future.
