Éric Olhats, ex agent of Antoine Griezmann, pronounced on his controversial statements on Leo Messi and the relation that is supported by the French
Lately, the relation between Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann has been put in doubt since the ex agent of the French, Éric Olhats, loaded duramente against the Argentinian through 'France Football'. "Antoine Griezmann arrived to a club with grave problems where Leo Messi controls it everything. It is at the same time emperor and monarch and did not see the arrival of Antoine with good eyes", said.
His speech still went further, accusing the deal of Leo Messi on Antoine Griezmann. "His attitude has been deplorable, has done it to him feel (his discontent). Always I have listened to Antoine say that it did not have problems with Messi, but never the other way around", commented, adding on the 'flea' that "it is the diet of the terror. Or you are with him, or you are against him". Something that generated big controversial.
Without going more far, the own Ronald Koeman pronounced on the subject and did not go especially kind with Éric Olhats. " I understand that by your part is to look for a controversy, but I in the changing room have not seen any bad relation between them two. If somebody has said something (by Eric Olhats), think that has left to Griezmann like his customer from three years ago, so they are chorradas", commented.
After so much stir, has been the own Éric Olhats the one who has wanted to pronounce with an open letter in the newspaper 'Mark'. "To the attention of all, in front of the diverse comments aroused by the supposed differences between Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann and the back statements of Ronald Koeman, want to express me with this letter through 'Mark' to clear a series of points. With this writing wish to put an end to all this subject", began.
"Griezmann Never spoke me of his relation with Messi"
First it wanted to leave clear that Antoine Griezmann did not speak him on his relation with Leo Messi. "In the first place I want to leave very clear that Antoine Griezmann NEVER informed me of this subject. The comments that did in France Football come by a situation argued by a lot of means during the past season. I understand that my comments are subjective and that even could be mistaken. Of them I am the only responsible", signalled.
On the other hand, it showed at variance with the others controversial statements, those that did the uncle of the French. "Also I want to leave clear that do not agree with the comments that did his uncle on these supposed desaveniencias between Griezmann and Messi. From it does long, specifically from three years ago, that do not keep relation with Antoine neither form part, as it says the Press, of the near circle to the family", added.
Answer to Ronald Koeman
Also it answered the words of Ronald Koeman. "In front of the words of the trainer Mr. Koeman describing as chorradas these comments, understand that he was defending to the institution and to the players, but is not in the true in two questions. One is when it speaks of customer when describing my relation with Griezmann. Between us never there was a contractual relation. I have not been his agent, I was his technical adviser, but understand that this awards me legitimacy to express my opinion without having to raise a finger to ask permission to anybody", commented.
Finally, it specified that the problems between Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann were the past campaign. "Equally, it says that he has not seen any problem between both players since it arrived. The majority of these problems took place during the past campaign in which I think that he was not the technician of the team. Conscious that the victim of all this subject is Antoine Griezmann, regret it sincerely and apologise", sentenced.
Finally, Éric Olhats ensured that it will not go back to pronounce on this subject. "This will be my last comment on this subject. That have good season! With all my respect for the Barcelona entity", finalised the controversial ex adviser of Antoine Griezmann.
