Antoine Griezmann has arrived this summer to the FC Barcelona by 120 million euros. The culés paid the clause of rescission to do with the forward of the Athletic does less than a month. The signing of the Frenchman has brought tail and has left to the rojiblancos very annoying with him and with the own Barça, to the that accuse to having arrived to an agreement with him in full season.
Éric Olhats, discoverer of the attacker blaugrana and now observer of the Atleti, has launched something of light on this subject and has explained for JDD how were the first contacts between Griezmann and the Barça. "When it took care him, I Hammered and Suárez called it by telephone several times, Messi one. It had convinced to Antoine that it was too to go , but the Barcelona went back to contact it before the eighth of final of the League of Champions between the Athletic and the Juventus in February. The discussions did not take place in the suitable moment", explained.
"I hammered and Suárez called it several times. Messi only one"
The Atleti has interposed a complaint accusing to the Barça and to the footballer precisely of this, but without physical proofs does not have too much that do. In spite of this, Olhats thinks that if the colchoneros are doing all this is because have these proofs. "I trust our adviser delegated, Miguel Ángel Gil, when it affirms to have evidence that the transfer did not do as it would have to. There was some negligence", espetó.
The discoverer of the player, this yes, affirmed that Griezmann does not have bad bottom, but that when it takes a decision is too inflexible. "Antoine is not a bad type, but when it walks in a direction does not give the turn. It strikes to the people that no longer are are at the side", aimed.
"Antoine is not bad type. Simply, when it advances, it does not give the turn"
Olhats Thinks that the attacker did not do the things well and held responsible also to his surroundings. "Antoine deserved a more worthy exit. It is his own fault and the one of his surroundings. I am a bit sad because it has to him a lot to Miguel Ángel Gil, the sportive director, Andrea Berta, to Diego Simeone. I understand that it wanted to something more after five seasons in the same club. This does not prevent me believe in his sincere apego to the Athletic", commented.
The relation between both has cooled
After the course of Griezmann of the Athletic, seems that the relation between Olhats and he has cooled a lot. He same recognises that the fact to be observer of the team to the that the tip left thrown is being key for this distance. Antoine called me when his transfer did reality, but have a bitter flavour. Our ways have moved away. I am employee of the club that finish to leave, am in the half, uncomfortable", concluded.
