‘I wish Bartomeu had the balls to ask Messi to help Griezmann’

Antoine Griezmann is yet to fully adapt at Barca. As such, Ex-Bayern Munich player Willy Sagnol insists that Josep Maria Bartomeu should ask Leo Messi to help the Frenchman adapt.

“I would like it if Barcelona’s president had the balls to talk to Messi and ask him to help Griezmann integrate into the team. Florentino Pérez did the same with Zidane in 2001.”

Speaking to French outlet Telefoot (h/t Diario Sport), Griezmann had a message for the Barca fans. Antoine himself admits that he hasn’t been at his best.

So far this season, Griezmann has appeared in 15 matches while scoring four goals and providing three assists. One of the possible reason behind Antoine’s slow start is the position Ernesto Valverde has been using him.
