Quique Setién has taken almost six months in understanding to Griezmann and plant him where more comfortable can feel. In Villarreal, the Frenchman took out his best version of second forward and leaving the band, that is where worse has played in the Barça
Antoine Griezmann arrived to the party of the Villarreal in his worst moment of the season and perhaps of his career futbolística. Quique Setién carried several parties ninguneándole and in front of the Athletic of Madrid went too far when taking out him to the field in the 90. This so controversial decision pursued to the Cantabrian all the past week and can that therefore it decided to have the Frenchman for the crash against the 'Yellow Submarine'. The '17' was to title this Sunday after two crashes followed 'sucking' bench and no desaprovechó his opportunity.
Thanks to the change of system that contrived Setién, the one of Macon enjoyed can that for the first time since it arrived to the Barcelona. The santanderino changed the training to include to the ex colchonero and put on the lawn a 4-3-1-2 with the three midfield player of always, but with interesting variants in the forward. Leo Messi happened of the right to the mediapunta and moved by where wanted to, whereas Griezmann split from the centre beside Luis Suárez, exerting more than second tip and moving between lines, just as it does in France and did in the Athletic.
The international 'bleu' went down to receive, combined more than ever with the rest of mates, threw desmarques of split whenever it could and stepped a lot the rival area. Besides, it left for the gallery his best goal since enfundó the elastic blaugrana, a vaselina wonderful from the frontal of the area that had signed the same Messi. It was the 1-3 against the castellonenses and encarriló the just party before arriving to the rest. This target supposed a very hard hit for the ones of Alley, that did not raise of the canvas in all the second half.
Seeing the level of Griezmann in the Stadium of the Ceramic it is necessary to ask after what Setién has taken so much in varying his diagram to include him. The Barcelona did official the arrival of the Cantabrian on 13 January, by what since has had spare time to see something that neither saw Ernesto Valverde in a lot of months in the charge. Specifically, the ex trainer of the Betis has taken 176 days in darse that the alone French needed a change of position to approach to his level of always.
Setién And Valverde have desaprovechado to Griezmann
There is who says that Antoine has gone back, but had gone some time? It has seen the Barça to the Griezmann for real sometime previous to this party? It is complicated to ensure at all, but this forward that shined in the ancient Madrigal is exactly the same that juice 4 minutes in front of the Atleti or that did not do at all in front of Leganés or Seville. The only that for real has changed is that Setién has decided to plant it at last in a place that yes improves his characteristics and that does him feel important and comfortable.
Of second forward yes can move in zones of the field where for real hurts. Besides, with Suárez at the side takes advantage of the spaces that the '9' generate, something that already did in the Athletic with Diego Coast and in France with Giroud or other tips. Also it helps him have to Messi at the side or by behind, since has more possibilities to combine and play. In band, that is as it has played almost always so much with Valverde as with Setién, limited to happen the balloon backwards, since it does not have desborde, and to throw desmarques that anybody was used to to see. It has been desaprvechado all the campaign, but now the thing at last could change.
In defence of Setién it is necessary to say that the fault of Suárez, that lesionó in January, complicated the lace of the Frenchman in a 4-3-1-2 like which saw in Villarreal. This system forces to play with a born tip, by what Martin Braithwaite would have to have been indisputable since it arrived. Nevertheless, the santanderino could have tested variants like putting to Antoine and Ansu up and plant to Messi by behind, or have insisted with Arturo Vidal in the mediapunta with the Argentinian and the French in tip.
It gives the feeling that the ex of the Betis has made a mistake all these months and that has taken too much in darse of something that was evident for many. It can that if it had tested this does a month the Barcelona would follow leader and would have LaLiga in his pocket. Now never it will know , but already it is necessary to think in the future more immediate and leave backwards this. They say that better afternoon that never, by what perhaps this serve so that the Barça of this jump of necessary quality to compete by the Champions League in August
