Barcelona forward Antonie Griezmann was asked about how his connection and comfort while playing with Lionel Messi is.
The forward stated nonchalantly that his relationship with Messi was very fluid – yet he was still learning how to play absolutely seamlessly with him, and it has not even been a year so far.
“Connection with Messi? I’ve been here for seven months now. We are learning each other’s movements and we will get better with time.”
“We knew how hard Getafe would be to play against,” Griezmann said. “They put a lot of pressure on and pressed high. They are third for a reason but we kept cool, tried to play the ball well from the back. It was tough but we suffered and won.
“I’ve been here six months, we still have to learn. I have to learn [Messi’s] movements and he has to learn mine. We’re enjoying the work we put in together and it’s getting better and better all the time. I’m very happy and really enjoying myself here.
“I missed a chance which I shouldn’t have done, it came to my weaker foot but luckily it didn’t matter.”
