Despite his failed stint at FC Barcelona, Antoine Griezmann is still one of the best players in the world, as explained by his former teammate Ivan Rakitic.
La Liga player since 2011, Ivan Rakitic know well Antoine Griezmann, especially since he spent an entire season with the French international, in 2019-2020, at FC Barcelona. The Croatian midfielder, who returned to Seville last year, tried to explain the two bad seasons of “Grizi” at the Blaugranas (102 matches, 35 goals).
“Antoine, I would always like him in my team! “
« Antoine is clearly one of the best players in the world, clearly, but sometimes in football there is no logic. Great players, if they’re not in the right place at the right time, may not thrive. It’s a shame because, Antoine, I would always like him in my team! I am very happy to see him return to theAthletic and enjoy again. Sometimes there are situations that we cannot explain », Launched the unfortunate finalist of the 2018 World Cup against the Blues, to beIN Sports.
Back at the Colchoneros in the last hours of the summer transfer window (a loan with a purchase option of 40 million euros with 10 bonus), the French international had a little trouble at the start within the training by Diego Simeone but has since found a smile. He has scored 4 goals in the last 5 matches of the Spanish champions in all competitions, including one great goal Sunday against Valencia.
