Hardly a day after the explosive statements of Eric Olhats, ex agent of Antoine Griezmann, on Leo Messi, the French wanted to recess the tension
Antoine Griezmann arrived to the FC Barcelona in summer of 2019 and, since, some rumours ensured that Leo Messi had not received him well and that the relation between both did not finish to be the most desirable. This subject seemed entirely forgotten and buried but, during this Tuesday, Eric Olhats, ex representative of the French, made some very hard indictments on the Argentinian.
The previous agent of the Frenchman ensured in some statements for 'France Football' that "Antoine Griezmann arrived to a club with grave problems where Leo Messi controls it everything. It is at the same time emperor and monarch and did not see the arrival of Antoine with good eyes. His attitude has been deplorable, has done him feel upset" and that "it is the diet of the terror. Or you are with him, or you are against him".
The words of Eric Olhats were a very clumsy way to defend to Antoine Griezmann, since to justify the low performance of the French aimed to the captain of the FC Barcelona. The controversy caused by the ineptitude of the previous agent of the 'principito' had to be cut of root by the own international Frenchman, that used the social networks to solve the problem.
Antoine Griezmann resorted to Twitter for retuitear, from his official account, a photography in which it sees him embraced to Leo Messi. The French forward seemed to want to dissipate any type of doubt about the good relation that at present is supported by the Argentinian star since the image is of the present season. If there was some brush sometime, in these moments already is solved.
Besides, the FC Barcelona goes to need a lot of the contribution goleadora that was born from the pair formed by Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann. The grave injury of Ansu Fati -a break of the meniscus of his left knee- will leave to Ronald Koeman four months without a main weapon in attack, by what the responsibility recaerá in footballers of chevrons like the Argentinian or the French.
Independently of how it was or it have been the relation of Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann out of the field, what can not deny is that when they are together on the lawn understand well. Now, the FC Barcelona will need more than ever that both are fine of face to door to compensate the fault of a '9' pure contrasted and the injury of Ansu Fati.
