The Barça paid 120 million euros for him, but for the moment he doesn't show signals of adaptation. Griezmann was this Tuesday the 'invisible' man in the Barça-Slavia, and still has not scored yet in this Champions
They happen the parties and follow without seeing green shoots regarding the adaptation of Antoine Griezmann. The French seems a 'intrusive' in the ecosystem of game of the FC Barcelona: it does not finish to fit in the training 4-3-3, neither of extreme neither of false nine, and besides follows without showing synergy with his mates. It has marked four goals in 12 days of League Santander, but is that in Champions League not even has premièred still with the Barcelona T-shirt.
This Tuesday, against the Slavia of Prague (0-0) in the Camp Nou, not even was able to shoot to goal neither to have some clear occasion ofgoal . The French attacker has been headline in the four first days of the phase of groups in Dortmund, in the Camp Nou against the Inter, in Prague and again home in front of the Slavia, but in any of the parties has seen him comfortable.
The past season transformed four goals with the Athletic of Madrid in the League of Champions, but his last target in the maximum European competition of clubs dates of 28 November. It is near to fulfil a year of this, what is a clear sample that to the Frenchman no gives him too well the Glass of Europe -at least up to now-, to the not to have found any course between the maxima realizadores of the tournament.
Ernesto Valverde will follow him giving opportunities and the player already knows that it needs to improve and accelerate his adaptation, but the patience has a limit... And the one of the barcelonismo goes exhausting increasingly. Against the Slavia of Prague already could hear some whistles to the French to measure that advanced the party, of the same form that listened also against Dembélé when it was substituted.
The barcelonismo expects much more of Griezmann
The fans culé does not forget that one cost 120 million euros, the another 105 'kilos' more 40 in variables and that any of the two has attained to explode still in Can Barça, although yes they have had excellent performances of isolated way. They follow without finding the regularity of Leo Messi and, also in some measure, of Luis Suárez whose absence noticed in front of the Slavia.
Griezmann Will have to put the batteries if it does not want that the whistles against him increase . No everything is fault of the Frenchman, taking into account that the style of the Barça is radically distinct to the of the Athletic of Madrid. It would surrender much better of second tip or mediapunta in a 4-2-3-1, but for now does not seem that Valverde was had to go out of the 4-3-3. The time will say if it is the correct decision... And, if it is not it, perhaps already it was too late to change.
