In him, Antoine Griezmann, that arrived to the FC Barcelona the past pertinent summer of the Athletic of Madrid, is allocated to have a key paper so much by his characteristics of game as by the injury of Luis Suárez​ for the next four months.

At the expense of if the FC Barcelona decides to fichar to a '9' that substitute to the Uruguayan, Griezmann will win responsibility in the diagrams of the team. We remember that Suárez is the maximum second goleador Barcelona and that the French, that in spite of not being a 'killer' arrived having harvested big encipher scorers so much in the Athletic of Madrid as in the French selection, will have to take a step forward in front of his absence.

Besides, Griezmann seems an ideal footballer to fit in the idea of football that has Setién. The Frenchman is a player that empty in the pressure to recover the balloon, in addition to a forward tremendously asociativo, that feels comfortable in a team that have the balloon constantly and that combine with him like one of the angular stones. It wins whole, then , to be a key piece.

The 'principito' knows that the change of trainer can favour him a lot and already began to shine in the first session of training with the Cantabrian, with a golazo included in the partidillo. Griezmann Heats engines and knows that his responsibility will increase without Luis Suárez, beginning by the party against the Granada that the Barça will play this next Sunday.
