Iniesta makes his prediction on Griezmann's future at Barca
- Griezmann has signed for Barca just over a week ago.
- Iniesta expects him to instantly adapt and play a big role for Barca.
- The forward knows La Liga, knows his new teammates.
- Being surrounded by better players will help Griezmann to improve, too.
Just over a week ago, Barcelona have finalized the move for Antoine Griezmann - a player they have been linked with for literal years.
His transfer was a topic of heated debate as not everyone at the club was ready to welcome the Frenchman at the Camp Nou. Well, now Antoine at least has the blessing of the club legend Andres Iniesta who backs him to succeed at Barca.
"He's got the quality and knows LaLiga - and his new teammates - really well," noted Iniesta as per Diario Sport. "He's got everything to do really well.
"He'll be surrounded by better players and everything suggests his time at the club will be very positive."
Andres also anticipates the sold-out during the match between Vissel Kobe and FC Barcelona on July 27 in Kobe.
"The atmosphere in the stadiums is really amazing. You will see that when we play against Barça on July 27th in Kobe, because the Noevir Stadium will surely be full."
"It will be strange to have Busi, Jordi Alba and Rakitic in opposition, it will be strange to play against the team of my life and it will be a day of many emotions for me. Hopefully, we will all enjoy it, and that the fans of Vissel Kobe have fun watching a great game."
Andres Iniesta spent 17 years at Barcelona and won 32 titles during this process. His trophy cabinet includes four Champions League and nine La Liga crowns. During this run, he made 674 first-team appearances for the Catalan giants in all competitions and scored 57 goals. Iniesta has never received a single red career during his illustrious career.
The enigmatic midfielder left the Catalan giants last summer. He joined Japanese side Vissel Kobe and keeps proving his worth there with three goals and six assists in 23 matches. Moreover, he has been recently handed a captain armband.
