- The Frenchman has been struggling for form since football returned.
- Setien claims spending three months without football could be responsible for the Frenchman's difficulties.
The manager remarked following the goalless draw against Sevilla as quoted by Marca: "He [Griezmann] is a footballer who moves a lot but it is not easy to filter the ball when you have 10 players so close, covering spaces for the pass.
"Everything is also a consequence of having spent three months without playing, this affects the rhythm.
"When it's your turn to play against a disciplined opponent, like Sevilla, and it's difficult to find the spaces.
"It is almost impossible to surprise these opponents. For some players, these situations are very frustrating. Perhaps we lack a point of effectiveness and coordination."
Griezmann joined Barcelona from Atletico Madrid last summer. He's bagged 14 goals and four assists for the Catalan giants so far this season.
