Antoine Griezmann has managed to impress on his Barcelona debut. The Frenchman started the disappointing 2-1 Chelsea defeat from the very first minutes but could have left the pitch in the 17th minute after a nasty foul from Jorginho. Luckily, he managed to continue even though he clearly hurt his knee.
Griezmann recalls the incident in an interview with Diario AS: "It hurt a little. And I'm sure tomorrow it will hurt more, but I'll be ready for the next game. It was an ugly tackle and he went in from the front, but that's football."
