The French international acknowledges having fully savored his current stage at Barça.
Antoine Griezmann says he is “proud” to play for Barcelona, even if that means he is not playing in his favorite role.
Griezmann has been deployed as one of the ‘two’ forwards in the Blaugrana starting squad alongside Lionel Messi in recent weeks, although he is more used to playing alone in the forefront or looking like new and a half as is the case in the national team. .
Since the switch to a 3-5-2 pattern, Barcelona have seen their performance improve and this is even more the case for Griezmann. The French striker walks on the water and was seen again this Sunday when he scored the two goals of his training during the beautiful away win against Villarreal (2-1).
Griezmann “continues working for the team”
“I try to be there, between the rival centrals”he told LaLiga TV. “I need to create spaces and create a gap for my teammates. It is not my natural position, but I am proud to be in Barcelona and to play with these teammates. Sometimes they ask me to score, other times I lead the attack, but I continue working for him. team “.
Griezmann was announced as a possible starter at the start of the season amid rumors of dissatisfaction on his part with the decision of his coach, Ronald Koeman, to play him at the full-back.
In fact, Griezmann had to move. It affected his performance, and he even lost his place in the incoming XI at one point.
His form, however, has improved since then, scoring 22 goals and assists this season. An attractive record and only Villarreal’s Lionel Messi and Gerard Moreno have done better in La Liga this year.
