In an exclusive interview with Le Parisien, Clément Lenglet spoke about his FC Barcelona teammate and countryman Antoine Griezmann, who is completing his first season at FC Barcelona and is a center of attention due to his performances in recent matches.

Antoine Griezmann is facing problems with his form and it can be seen through his performances in recent matches. Lenglet said that he has full confidence in Griezmann and he knows that he will succeed at Barcelona. Lenglet explained that due to his (Griezmann’s) quality, expectations are always high from him

“When on pitch, he himself knows that he can do better, but we should not forget his overall performance of this season which includes 14 goals and 4 assists. These stats are not bad for first season. But since its Griezmann, the case is a bit different because of his stats during his career at Atletico Madrid. He is a player from which we expect a lot. I see him working hard during training sessions and it will get better.”

After being with the Blaugranas for 2 seasons, Lenglet has started to know how things work at Barcelona.  

“For a Barcelona forward, it is always the same. When he doesn’t score goals in two matches it is because he has problems and once, he scores 2 goals, we will say that ‘Super-Antoine’ has returned.”

The Frenchman doesn’t want to give up La Liga title.

“There are still six games left to be played and we will fight till the end. We will keep trying to get points, to keep winning. But it is hard to keep oneself motivated.”

He also added about Champions League final,

“It would be a dream to play Champions League final against PSG”
