The dependency goleadora of the FC Barcelona in the so many of Leo Messi and Luis Suárez was a problem for the team culé, by what Antoine Griezmann arrived to reinforce the attack. By the moment, the French is not achieving take out his potential maximum and is costing him adapt to the new system of game and to the new position that occupies.

Confined to the left band, Griezmann does not finish to work. In spite of that has big qualities like forward, does not have neither an enormous speed, neither a capacity virtuosa of dribbling that turn him into a specialist in the game of band. As false '9', neither has stood out especially neither the few times that has played here with the Barça neither in the French selection.

The ideal place of Griezmann is the one of mediapunta, taking out his best potential in positions centred by behind the referent of area. But this position does not exist in the diagram of the FC Barcelona and is Leo Messi the one who moves with the freedom of which the French gazaba in the Athletic. Therefore, reconvert him can sere an interesting option and maybe would not be an option decabellada test him like interior.

Remember what did to triumph to Griezmann in Wanda Metropolitan: his arrivals by surprise from second line to mark, his assistances, his capacity of association, his vision of game and his need to take part in the majority of played of attack. To all this it is necessary to add his defensive sacrifice and his tactical intelligence, that turn him into a very cost player to accompany to specialists like Arthur and Frenkie of Jong.

The Barça already saw him like possible midfield player

In the previous reports to the signing of the 'principito', already contemplated the possibility that it played like midfield player. Unlike Philippe Coutinho (that the past season was tested of interior), Griezmann is a player of wide route and shows it split yes and party also with the one of kilometres that visits by the band. The carioca is not a fondista, but the Frenchman yes.

Thus, it would not be any madness that Valverde can test him in said role, in which it would win a lot of participation in the creation of the game. As to him it likes him. When something does not work, it is necessary to touch keys for revertir the situation and, given the ineffectiveness of Griezmann in the band, maybe could open horizons with him, because of his versatility and to his repertoire of resources.
