For Griezmann has arrived the hour of the truth. This Sunday 4 August, the Camp Nou will dictate sentence and we will know if the fans have forgiven him... Or still not
The Camp Nou will dictate sentence, this Sunday 4 August, when the name of Antoine Griezmann was announced by the megaphony of the stadium. It will know then if the fans culé has forgiven him, or no, after the controversial documentary that issued the summer happened to give 'pumpkins' to the FC Barcelona and ensure that it renewed and remained in the Athletic of Madrid.
The dream rojiblanco lasted hardly some months, what took Griezmann in waking up and darse that it had made a mistake. If it wishes to conquer important titles, knows that it has to be to the edge of Leo Messi, forming part of one of the best staff of the history of the FC Barcelona. The French star has landed in the club giving off very good vibrations, had to win to the fans from the minute one.
For this, however, will be prioritario that mark a lot of goals, give a lot of assistances and, in definite, show with football that 'The Decision' form already splits of the past. The barcelonismo probably divide between whistles and applauses in the previous of the Trophy Joan Gamper, but to which Griezmann annotate his first target with the elastic Barcelona, foresees that these applauses win volume.
They are not few the followers culés that, in spite of having had reticencias on the signing of the Frenchman, have finish accepting it and are decided to encourage him to the maximum now that it is player of the Barça. That would have to be the majority thought of the fans: the one to give spirit and moral strength to a footballer, Griezmann, that with his undoubted talent can give big joys to this club.
Ernesto Valverde will plant him in the eleven headline in front of the Arsenal, taking into account that Leo Messi and Coutinho still have not trained, and that Luis Suárez just finish of reincorporarse to the discipline culé after some weeks on holiday. Griezmann, therefore, will be the big offensive reference of the Barça in the Gamper and, at least during the first-half, expects that have the opportunity to mark his first target like venue in the Camp Nou.
That is, at least, the big illusion of the player. Accustomed to coexist with the pressure, Griezmann is decided to take out the spine of the Champions League and LaLiga Santander with the FC Barcelona. It has arrived to a team champion, but with a lot of players that neither have won the 'orejona'.
The fans, the player number 12 of the Barça
His ambition, therefore, will add to the one of the rest so that the Barça, by pure motivation and quality, go back to be this season one of the big favourites in all the tournaments. The year happened already was it, and was very near of the triplete. This year, with Griezmann, Of Jong and the rest of new faces, the team only can go to more. And the fans, like the player number twelve that it is, will have to carry it in volandas.
