Asked to comment on his time at FC Barcelona, ​​Antoine Griezmann admits that he would have preferred things to go better.

A year after pushing back the advances of FC Barcelona , Antoine Griezmann finally signed with the Blaugrana club during the summer of 2019. The World Champion had signed for 120M €, a sum corresponding to his release clause at Atlético de Madrid . But while he was eagerly awaited, Antoine Griezmann never managed to win at Barça and finally made his return to the Colchoneros last summer. And the native of Mâcon admits that he hoped for better from his time at Barcelona .

“Things did not go as well as I hoped”

“The truth is that I performed well at Real Sociedad, then I grew up at Atleti, sportingly and also in my private life, with my wife, my children … That helps you be more relaxed and enjoy everything. And then I left for Barcelona. Due to the circumstances, things did not go as well as I hoped. That's why I wanted to come back to play again for Cholo (Diego Simeone; editor's note) and Atleti. This is what I wanted the most, and the truth is that I really like being here and I hope I can continue like this, ”he assures in an interview with Transfermarkt.
