It is not being easy for Griezmann adapt to the Barcelona, but neither has exhausted all the roads to fit. In fact it can have a solution in sight
Antoine Griezmann arrived to the FC Barcelona like signing 'galactic' 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 .
We do not have to forget that Griezmann arrived to the Camp Nou to be a key player inside the team and are not few those that fear that it repeat a 'case Coutinho' with the French. Nevertheless, Quique Setién does not have destapado a road that can do that yes it offer a version resembled the one who offered in the Athletic of Madrid: delay his position to the centre of the field.
Remember what did to triumph to Griezmann in Wanda Metropolitan: his arrivals by surprise from second line to mark, his assistances, his capacity of association, his vision of game and his need to take part in the majority of played of attack. To all this it is necessary to add his capacity of defensive sacrifice and his tactical intelligence, that turn him into a very valid player to complement the medullary.
In fact, in the previous reports to the signing of the 'principito', already contemplated the possibility that it played like midfield player. Griezmann Is a player of wide route and shows it split yes and party also with the one of kilometres that visits for presionar and defend. We are speaking of a true 'fondista', by what is not descabellado that Setién can test him in positions more retarded.
In this case, Ansu Fati recobraría the leadership that has lost during the last weeks and Martin Braithwaite also would grow in importance. In fact, so much the bissauguineano like the Danish have showed that have a big connection with Leo Messi and that understand well the game of attack culé. Something that Griezmann, in spite of his goals, does not finish to attain.
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 Wanda Metropolitan, by what test him in the centre of the field can be a viable alternative.
