Some like Lionel Messi, some do not.
However, we are pretty sure no one has had such a vindictive, derogatory and classless go at the legend of Barcelona like former French star Cristophe Dugarry.
“What is [Griezmann] afraid of? A kid who is 1.5 metres tall and half autistic?” the 1998 World Cup winner said. “All he has to do is show some balls at some point.
“I’ve been saying for a year that he has a problem with Messi. He has to hit him in the face.
“It’s true that Messi could give him more passes, but honestly I am not surprised. Griezmann loses balls, doesn’t play with confidence. Griezmann should go and talk to Messi to solve the problem.”
Dugarry did not leave out Barcelona coach Setien from criticism as well.
“He is not a decisive coach. Setien is very nice but he doesn’t have the right credentials – he didn’t know who to change,” Dugarry said. “He replaced Sergio Busquets in the 85th minute to bring in Ansu Fati and launched Griezmann in in the 90th.
“I don’t think it’s anything against Griezmann, he just doesn’t know how to get this team to play. He’s completely overwhelmed. I’m convinced that he has nothing against Griezmann, but rather he is just incompetent.”
