Antoine Griezmann turned into the signing crashes of the FC Barcelona 2019-20, but his first months like Barcelona are not being easy. In a team to the that is costing him start this season, the French does not finish to find his place, because in the usual 4-3-3 system does not fit neither as leading centre, neither like extreme, what is preventing him show his enormous quality and surrender to the maximum of his possibilities.

The last in going in in the debate has been Didier Deschamps, that has showed understanding with his pupilo. The seleccionador 'bleu' has thought on the subject in the press conference in which it has made public his last announcement, of face to the commitments of classification for the Eurocopa 2020 that will take place in October in front of Iceland (day 11 to domicile) and Turkey (day 14 home).

The ex footballer has signalled that these initial difficulties are comprehensible, and more with a change of style so marked like which exists between Wanda Metropolitan and the Camp Nou: "Never it is easy to change of team, even for Griezmann. The Athletic organised around him. Go was not easy, perhaps needed to go out of there. Now it arrives to a team with some habits, to which do not adapt you overnight".

"Him sucedió the same when it arrived from the Real Sociedad to the Athletic of Madrid, was complicated at the beginning. In spite of everything attained to be an important player for the club. It has signed by a team that does him play in the position that does him play, do not say at all... But with France do it play in another position", has glided. The one of Bayona considers that the time will be key to see him triumph, although it also aims to that it would be necessary to review the system to be able to see him in his best version.

This yes, the technician does not have doubts that with his character and qualities has it everything to shine in the City Condal, although now it touch him share resposabilidades with other stars, as Leo Messi or Luis Suárez. "It is a generous player. Perhaps it was less decisive of what was in the Athletic, but will find his place in the middle of so many good footballers", has predicted, warning also that when the Catalan group scope his "maximum speed" will be easier for the tip.

The change of system could solve the problems

The doubts of the Barça in the last months could remain solved with a change of system, precisely the preferred of Ernesto Valverde. The 4-2-3-1 that the Txingurri used in his last clubs could be determinant to fit to all the pieces of the puzzle, giving fit to the Messi, Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé, facilitating the adaptation of Griezmann and opening gap even for Neymar or Philippe Coutinho, other reinforcements that have sounded for the attack.
