Going through a delicate period at FC Barcelona, ​​Samuel Umtiti is pushed towards the exit by his management. But despite this, the 28-year-old defender still has the support of some former teammates like Antoine Griezmann.

Following his coronation at the World Cup with the France team in 2018, Samuel Umtiti was regularly subject to injuries. The French international has therefore gradually lost his place in the eleven of FC Barcelona , to the point of benefiting from a very limited playing time. Although he has been spared the big physical problems this season, the former OL has only played one game in all competitions (on December 12 against Osasuna). So, Samuel Umtiti could leave the Catalan club this winter since it is announced on the departure. In the midst of a very delicate situation, the 28-year-old defender still has the support of some former teammates.

“Samu has been in great shape for a year, but then there is the choice of coaches ”

In response to a tweet from Didier Roustan concerning the passage of Samuel Umtiti to Barça , < strong> Antoine Griezmann gave a lot of support to his friend, taking the opportunity to clarify things about the physical condition of the Frenchman: “Didier, without Sam, there is no second star . It's been a year since Samu has been in great shape, but then there is the choice of coaches! An irreproachable professional! An example for all young French central defenders! »
