Antoine Griezmann has in France a very distinct role to the that offers him Ronald Koeman in the FC Barcelona. His performance and his statistics like this corroborate it
The first season of Antoine Griezmann in the FC Barcelona was not to the height neither of the expectations that had generated after his big years in the Athletic of Madrid neither neither of the high price that Josep Maria Bartomeu paid for dressing him of Barcelona: 120 million euros of his clause and other 10 so that the club rojiblanco did not initiate a process against the culés by supposed irregularities.
Of face to his second campaign in the Camp Nou, expected that the French, with a year of shooting in the FC Barcelona, turned into an important man. Lamentably, his performance in the three first official parties has been very toneless: neither it has premièred like goleador neither has given the feeling to be adapted to the new 4-2-3-1 of Ronald Koeman, in which it situates of extreme.
However, when it plays in France all is distinct. In the selection gala, the 'principito' enjoys of all the freedom of the world to move by all the offensive flank, splitting from the mediapunta but with capacity of surprise for incrustarse between the two forwards, that are used to to be Kylian Mbappé and Olivier Giroud. Like this the things, against Croatia gave a big level and marked a golazo.
After the party, Antoine Griezmann launched a clear message that, although many interpret like a 'dart' to Ronald Koeman, rather seems a súplica to the Dutch trainer. "I seat me well, I find me well, because the trainer (Didier Deschamps) know where put me and, therefore, benefit me of this, as well as of the confidence that offer me the technician and my mates", said.
Somehow, it seems that Antoine Griezmann, that was criticised by the own Ronald Koeman by the two goals that failed against the Seville, gave him back an answer to the Dutch so that it know that, if it decides to plant him in his ideal position of mediapunta, will answer him with the brilliant game that expects of him and that, without place to doubts, is much more near to offer with France that with the FC Barcelona.
This position is of Philippe Coutinho
The problem that has at present Antoine Griezmann is that Ansu Fati is intocable in the left, Leo Messi is it as false '9' and Philippe Coutinho by the centre. The ideal position of the French is the one of this last, but the true is that the carioca is to a big level and, if it does not go down it, seems intocable in this position of '10'. Maybe, the only road so that Griezmann abandon the right extreme was to exchange the position with Messi, that can adapt better to this position.
