Griezmann is still in the phase of adaptation.
Since the arrival of Antoine Griezmann FC Barcelona this summer, Ernesto Valverde commented repeatedly on the integration and adaptation of the French. Often targeted by critics, including this week after the defeat to Levante (3-1) and a draw in the face Slavia Prague, the attacker of the Blue still has to get used to his new teammates, according to his coach. “Griezmann comes from a team (Atlético de Madrid) with a different style of game, where we asked him to go a lot in the space, to the markdowns. […] Us, we built more of our shares, the timing is different.”
To support his argument, the coach of Barça has dared a comparison with Neymar. “The players have to get used to the game, Griezmann, and Griezmann should get used to find the right moment to do what he did. This is not obvious…Neymar also had trouble during his first year here,” he said. Antoine Griezmann has been summoned to the meeting of la Liga face Celta Vigo on Saturday evening (21h).
