During five seasons, Antoine Griezmann was the big star of the Athletic of Madrid, the man of offensive reference and the angular stone of the game of Diego Pablo Simeone. The technician of the team colchonero has conceded an interview to the the Chain Be in which it has spoken on the fly of the signing crashes of the Barça in summer.

The trainer of the Athletic of Madrid ensured that it has spoken with Griezmann since it left and that his feeling is that the Frenchman is very to taste with the decision that took in summer to change of airs to play in the Camp Nou. "I have seen it it does a pair of days, is very happy, obviously is in the place that wanted to be and, obviously, when one is in a stage that needs to be in a place has to be there", explained.

"The exit of Lucas was more painful that the one of Griezmann"

Besides, Simeone thinks that the French will fit well in the group. "Has talent and goes to be well, is good people, is humble, will know to go in in the group in the step that allow him to be able to go in", said, adding that "it is a boy that is not to speak a lot, to involve a lot, will go in to little, by his step, by his tranquility. It is a very cheerful boy and do not have doubts that it will walk well".

The most surprising moment of Simeone arrived when it ensured that, in his opinion, the course of Griezmann was less painful that the one of Lucas Hernández to the Bayern of Munich. "The exit that more damage did us was the one of Lucas, that was a boy of the quarry. More than the one of Griezmann. The exits have been important", remarked.

It is necessary to remember that the Athletic of Madrid lost to several important players in addition to Griezmann and Lucas, as they went it Rodri, Juanfran, Filipe Luis or Diego Godín. Simeone, puest, has the mission to fit to a group with a lot of quality with the arrival of other players like Joao Félix or Marcos Llorente.

The staff of the Barça, the best for Simeone

For Simeone, the FC Barcelona has the most compensated team of LaLiga. "It follows having a much more complete staff. Have to four mediocampistas tremendos. Have to Busquets, to Arthur, to Of Jong, to Rakitic! Rakitic Says that it does not want to stroll by the beach. Rakitic! That it won it all and does not play. But it does not surprise me because the football is very dynamic and the trainers look for what see better for the team", concluded.
