He is always being criticized for his different performances in Barcelona and France. Critiques say that his performance is not so much in Barcelona as in France. In this context, Griezmann opened his mouth and told about the reason behind his different behavior.
Truth behind Griezmann’s different performance
Griezmann said that he does not feel as comfortable in the national team as he does in Barcelona. The reason may be that the entire resistance in Barcelona surrounds Lionel Messi. But all the balls in the national team turn Griezmann’s foot. As Barcelona’s Lionel Messi is the center of all resistance, Griezmann took the seat in the French team. He also said that he was used as a wing in Barcelona. As a result, “I do not get a place in the one-on-one position, so I am not the focus at the opponent.” He also shared that he had to sit when his teammates and were preparing for the game in the beginning. It was a frustrating experience. Griezmann said he was optimistic about the current situation. He said it hurt him when he had to sit on the bench at the start of Camp Nou as had the experience to play with big matches. But in the match against Madrid, I had to sit. This decision was made by the coach and I had to accept it.
Why Griezmann is more comfortable with French team
Talking about his performance in France, Griezmann said that he is very independent with the French team. Here I change my position as the team needs. Sometimes I can play pin defensive midfielder or sometimes full back. As a result, he always feels important in the national team. Note that in 2018 he won either the World Cup title in France.
