In a recent media interaction, Barcelona striker Antoine Griezmann has shed light upon his on-field relationship with senior strikers Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez and midfielder Clément Lenglet.
All the three main Barca strikers found their names on the scoresheet as Barca defeated Eibar 3-0 and reached the summit of the La Liga points tally. The Frenchman, who joined Barcelona in the recently concluded summer transfer window for a reported fee of €120 million, has made as many as eight appearances for them in the league so far and already has four goals and three assists to his credit.
After the Eibar win, Griezmann admitted that there will be good as well as bad days in sports and they just need to understand each other’s game better.
“There will be good days and bad days,” he said in a pitch side interview post the match as quoted by Marca.
“I’ve just arrived and I need to get used to this. We need to understand each other even better, but that will come with minutes and matches.
“The three points were important because it can be difficult after an international break. But we had a good game and now we can think about the Champions League.
“We knew that [Eibar] pressed high, so I’d said to Lenglet to put the ball into space near me if he saw me near the full-back, and that’s what happened. We created a lot of chances with good passes,” he added.
