If the French attacker of Barcelona Antoine Griezmann is not having a good performance, the Catalan club is because of the Argentine Lionel Messi, who dominates everything and imposes very gentle training, according to an uncle of the former Atlético de Madrid player.
“I was convinced that Antoine was not going to succeed in six months in Barcelona, but I didn’t expect it to last a year. Besides, with Messi there, … I know what’s going on inside, it’s not easy.” indicated the family member of the French striker in a documentary broadcast on French television “M6”.
With many qualms, Griezmann’s uncle assures that everything that happens in the Blaugrana dressing room cannot be told before revealing some of the complaints that his nephew is supposed to have.
“There are things that still cannot be counted. But not enough work is done. In general, Barcelona does not work. The workouts are made to be liked by certain people. It is evident that it does not work “, adds.
For Griezmann’s relative, his nephew “needs to work” and “others don’t need to make a lot of effort to be good” while “Antoine is the other way around, he needs a lot of effort to be good”.
The statements of Griezmann’s uncle come after the former adviser of the French footballer Eric Olhats loaded on the pages of France Football against Messi.
“Comment on everything. He is both an emperor and a monarch and he did not like Antoine’s arrival very much. His attitude was deplorable and he made it noticeable. It is a regime of terror. Either you are with him or you are against him”, he assured.
For Olhats, Messi is “as good on the field as bad off”, while pointing out that last season the Argentine did not speak to the French or pass the ball to him.
“It created a real trauma for a more than negative adaptation. That necessarily leaves consequences,” he said.
