Antoine Griezmann is called to be important in the FC Barcelona of Ronald Koeman. The Dutch knows it and wants to 'take care him' for being the natural relief of Leo Messi
Antoine Griezmann was one of the players elogiados by Ronald Koeman in the previous press conference to the party of LaLiga Santander of the FC Barcelona against the Elche. "It does not be necessary to put too much pressure. It is giving the best in several parties, has helped, marked two goals in the final of the Supercopa of Spain. We need goals, but no of an alone player, also of other forwards and midfield players", said the Dutch trainer.
Ronald Koeman knows to perfection the important that has to be Antoine Griezmann and more in cases like the party of the Martínez Valero, without the presence of Leo Messi by his expulsion in the final of the Supercopa of Spain. Without the Argentinian star in the terrain of game, all have to give a plus so that the FC Barcelona do not go down the provision but the French, by his position, has to be the one who take a step forward.
The plan of Ronald Koeman with Antoine Griezmann is to give him 'mimos' and go up him the spirits, valuing when it do the things very go in or no the balloon in the goal. The ex of the Athletic of Madrid is a player that understands the game to perfection, that is able to mark goals and also to generate them through the game of association. Besides, his defensive effort is innegable and very valued by any technician.
It is necessary to take into account also that Leo Messi goes to lose very possibly more split by injury or simple rest after the of the Elche. In this case, Antoine Griezmann will have to be prepared to play with full freedoms in the forward of the FC Barcelona. Ronald Koeman will give him more chevrons and the French will have to answer especially well in absence of the captain.
Griezmann, key in a future without Messi
It is necessary to take into account also the possible goodbye of Leo Messi at the end of the present season. If finally it confirms the course of 'the flea' to another team, Antoine Griezmann will recover this role that had in the Athletic of Madrid of freedom and responsibility to equal parts. It is here where the French neither can fail at all, since his profile of game and the chevrons that shows with France have to appear.
By the moment, the FC Barcelona has the luck to have both and, partly, of his connection goes to depend that the Barcelona group aspire to win titles. Both are recovering feelings during the last weeks and expects that they go on doing it so that the team grow. Ronald Koeman trusts both, of the same way that does it in an Ousmane Dembélé increasingly important.
