Antoine Griezmann Poor For Barcelona Compared To Atletico Madrid Days

Antoine Griezmann is struggling at Barcelona and everybody has noticed it by now.

Former Barca player, Jeremy Mathieu outlined how different his compatriot has been since his Atletico Madrid days.

“He isn’t at the level he was at Atletico,” Mathieu said. “I think he was wrong to sign for Barcelona. At Atletico, he was an important piece of the team, and I don’t know if he has that place at Barcelona.”

Barca drew 1-1 against Cadiz last weekend with Clement Lenglet giving away a late penalty. The defender was seen leaving Camp Nou in tears as the Blaugrana further dropped two points behind in the title race.

“I had a very bad time in my last year with Barcelona,” Mathieu told RAC1. “I felt that the defeat in Turin was my fault.

“But I don’t understand why they went for me as eleven players play football. I felt alone in the dressing room. No one offered support. For me, that’s not football. Everyone is killing Lenglet now, and I know what that’s like. He has to try and be positive and to turn it around, and try his best.”

Barcelona take on PSG next in the Champions League second leg. After the 4-1 drubbing at Camp Nou, it would take something very special for them to progress to the next round.
