Antoine Griezmann told to leave Barcelona due to Messi rift

Griezmann urged by former French international Bixente Lizarazu to leave Barcelona in the January transfer window.

The 29-year old forward was signed by Barcelona last summer for £105m but has failed to live expectations scoring only 11 goals in 42 appearances.

It has been vastly rumoured that he does not get on with Lionel Messi and Bixente Lizarazu urges him to move to away from the Camp Nou as soon as possible.

“You can see that Griezmann is not happy on the pitch,” Lizarazu said in an interview with France Football.

“To play well, a footballer must feel supported. There must be a relationship of trust with the coach and teammates. I don’t see that.

“He does not find his place with Leo Messi. They don’t play together. The solution is to leave.

“You have to be able to say enough. Frankly, is it worth insisting. The environment is not good for him.

“The most important thing is to find a better environment to develop. Barcelona’s mess is too much .

“It is better to leave that so as not to continue falling, to go to a stable club where the coach wants you.

“Where? I don’t know, but it must be a great club. He will not enjoy staying at Barça.”
