After three months of official competition, Antoine Griezmann is not dazzling as much as expected of him after his arrival. The French came of the Athletic of Madrid, knowing LaLiga Santander to perfection, handling the Spanish wonderfully and precisely thus it expected that his adaptation to the Camp Nou went fast and sweet.

Nevertheless, in spite of having a profile of game asociativo that on the paper had to do him fit to to perfection in the Barça, to Griezmann are not him going out the things​ in these first months like culé. The Frenchman is receiving critical and his place in the eleven headline is fragile due to the fact that Ousmane Dembélé and Ansu Fati tighten with strength to win it.

During the last concentration of the combined of France in this stop of selections, Griezmann has broken his silence and has pronounced about his situation in the FC Barcelona and the difficult adaptation that is having to fit in the Camp Nou.

I am learning a lot, although it already knew that arrive to the Barcelona went to be difficult". It is necessary to remember that Ernesto Valverde is used to him plant like left-handed extreme, a distinct position to which played in the Athletic, like mediapunta.

Shortly after Didier Deschamps also went out in his defence. "His moment in the Barcelona is far to be catastrophic. That it is less decisive that with us, but could be better. It is a question of position in the field. It was in his best position in the Athletic, although he already knows that I have him a big confidence", sentenced.

Griezmann, without continuity

The French forward hto had big parties like which played in the Camp Nou against the Real Betis (marked two goals) or the one of Ipurua against the Eibar (annotated one), but in general lines is not being determinant neither in the construction of the game, neither in goals neither in assistances.
