Antoine Griezmann arrived to the FC Barcelona like signing crashes and like the man that had to leave backwards the dependency goleadora of the team in the so many annotated by Leo Messi and Luis Suárez. By the moment, the French is not achieving take out his potential maximum and is costing him adapt. In spite of that it is the second goleador culé​ -empatado with the Uruguayan, lesionado, with 14 goals- does not have the influence in the game that presupposed him .

Eric Olhats, considered the big discoverer of Griezmann and like the man that brought it to the Real Sociedad with 13 years, desgranó in some statements collected by Sportive World the signing of the leading Frenchman by the FC Barcelona. "When it went of the Athletic of Madrid, put me sad see the controversy that there was. It affected me. It is a background history and of form", recognised, remembering that it went between criticisms of the Metropolitan.

Also it showed understanding with the decision of the player although, remember, in his day accepted that it hurt him that it went . "I can understand that it wanted to fichar by the Barcelona. The Barça is the Barça", said, adding that "other players and friends said him that his game went to adapt very well to the of the Barça, tiqui taca and all this, but to me does not like me his performance".

Besides, Olhats analysed the current situation of Griezmann and recognised that "it sees that has problems, that does not have joy". "It hurts me because I know of what is able to do. It can give much more and he does not say at all. It tries to do without saying at all", added, recognising that it does not like him that they substitute him and that "seems that it does not receive so many passes of others, and neither of the boss to the that has to ".

The mentor of Griezmann considered also that maybe it is not of the all just with him. "It happened a month, the second, he understood that it is not the boss, but now he, by his attitude and by his talent, deserves to have a bit more than consideration", said, expecting that "it surpass over time" the difficulties because "has only 28 years and is a player of world-wide class".

Griezmann Has not worked neither of extreme neither of leading centre

So much in the stage of Ernesto Valverde in the bench as in the current of Setién, Antoine Griezmann has been able to play in the positions of attack: right extreme, left extreme and, after the injury of Suárez, leading centre. In any of them has taken out to relucir the potential that yes showed in the Athletic of Madrid, team in which it played by behind the tip with total freedom.
