The French international gave a short interview to RTL in which he talked about Barcelona and his first season at the Catalan Club.

After his move to Barcelona last season, Antoine Griezmann has had a tough time adjusting to the Barça style of play and even the club itself had a trophyless campaign that ended in a painful defeat at Lisbon. “It has been a very complicated season for everyone, but now we can start it again,” said Griezmann.

The French player was often criticized for the poor link-ups with Barça number 10, Lionel Messi. The 29-year-old explained, “It has been similar to my relationship with Mbappé in the national team. In the beginning, we did not link well with passes and it took me a long time to understand my game with him. With Messi, everything will be better soon”.

Griezmann also spoke about his second season at the Camp Nou, ​​in which he will play under a new coach and hopes to hit his best form. “I’m very happy at Barcelona. ​​I know I have the confidence of the club and the coach. I’m looking forward to seeing my teammates again and give everything to win all the possible trophies, as we have had a trophyless season and it had not happened in Barcelona for a long time”.
