It took me a long time to find it. But it will come with Leo. I can’t wait to get there and have fun“, explained the 2018 world champion.

Despite rumors of a possible departure, he has confirmed that he will play well at Camp Nou. “Yeah, I don’t know why people invent destinations a bit to see if one day they’ll find them. I am very well there, I have the confidence of the club and the coach. So I’m fine. It was a very complicated season for everyone, now we are starting again “, commented on the former Atlético Madrid element.
“I really want to know the new coach (Ronald Koeman) personally, although I have spoken with him on the phone before, but it is not the same face to face. I can’t wait to find the teammates and want to do everything to win trophies. It’s been a blank season, it’s been a very long time for Barça, and I want to help my teammates to win “, Griezmann said.
With the departure as much as possible of Luis Suarez, the Frenchman should, like Ousmane Dembélé, have the opportunity to refine his performance in Barça de Koeman.
