Barcelona boss Setien is very pleased with Griezmann after he made his first goal since February.
Quique Setien had been doubtful of giving more game time to Antoine Griezmann, but turns out, he doesn’t need to be in doubt anymore. Griezmann scored a goal, along with Luis Suarez and Ansu Fati scoring as well in the La Liga match against Villareal, winning 4-1.
“He has associated himself very well and has been gaining confidence,” the Barcelona head coach said, via AS.
“I am very satisfied as I suppose he will be after the goal so beautiful that he has scored, reminded me of one of [Lionel] Messi’s at [Real] Betis.”
Setien could further take a sigh of relief after their win since this was their second win in 5 games.
“All teams are different. Today, we have had everything,” he said.
Setien added: “Other teams like Atletico [Madrid] or Sevilla, firmer in defence created more problems for us. Perhaps they were stronger than this.
“This helps us a lot in confidence. We have pressed very well and we haven’t allowed them to leave. We have made a very balanced match. I would have liked to be right before.”
