Latest Football News – Defeated two goals to zero with Atlético Madrid, Antoine Griezmann lived a horrible evening. Insulted and booed at Camp Nou, he failed to win.
This Saturday, Barça and Atlético met for a match-shock in La Liga. Winners by two goals to zero, the men of Ernesto Valverde are eleven points ahead of the Colchoneros Diego Simeone nine days from the end and according to the Spanish press, the title is definitely played. Despite a xxl performance by Jan Oblak, the goals were scored by Luis Suarez (84) and the indefatigable Lionel Messi (86), in a dominated confrontation of the head and shoulders by the Blaugranas.
And Atlético in all this? Not much. Their only action of the first period? A red card for Diego Costa, who insulted the match’s referee. Antoine Griezmann, announced at FC Barcelona next year, spent a new dirty night at Camp Nou despite some good travel. Powerless offensively, like his teammates, we can not say that Griezmann had a great time in what could be his new garden.
He was insulted
If the leaders of the Catalan club are rather fans of Antoine Griezmann, they even hoped to transfer it home last summer, the fans do not seem to hear it that way. Whistled with each shot, the 2018 World Champion had, probably the surprise, to hear a song for him that was not really very nice. “Griezmann, asshole, go away from Camp Nou,” could be heard in the bays of the Barça stadium.
In question ? His staging and his refusal, finally, to engage with FC Barcelona last summer. In a documentary called the “decision”, the native of Macon had raised the pressure and ended up saying that he would not go to Barca and he would even sign a new lease with the Matelakers, with a nice increase wage. It is not surprising to hear this kind of talk. Maybe Griezmann will want to make them change his mind if he signs for Barça.
