Barcelona star Antoine Griezmann left ‘hurt’ after presidential candidate claims club should not have signed £108m star – Bukipress


- Advertisment -

ANTOINE GRIEZMANN has been left ‘hurt’ after Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font claimed the striker should have never have been signed.

Griezmann moved to Barca last year in a £108million transfer from Atletico Madrid but has yet to live up to his hefty price tag.

Antoine Griezmann has failed to reproduce his form with France at Barcelona

Font told Cadena Cope: “Griezmann was a signing that shouldn’t have been made.”

Griezmann is reportedly unhappy with the presidential candidate’s comments which have undermined his role at the club.

The forward’s form for France has been in stark contrast to his club performances but he has been played centrally in the national team.

Griezmann has had to play second fiddle to Lionel Messi at Barca and playing out wide has failed to maximise his talent.

The 29-year-old has also fallen out with coach Ronald Koeman with their relationship souring after a disappointing start to the season.

Griezmann is under pressure to live up to his huge transfer fee and needs to deliver with Barcelona languishing in eighth place in LaLiga.

Font is the early favourite to win the presidential election and if he succeeds it suggests a bleak future for Griezmann at the Nou Camp.

Griezmann has scored two goals in seven appearances this season for Barca as he struggles to reproduce the prolific form from his time in Madrid.

Font has outlined his plans if he wins the election and is intent on bringing Xavi back as the new coach.

But a bigger concern will surely focus on keeping hold of Messi with the superstar still keen on leaving Barca.
