- Regarding the infamous documentary, the forward is set to turn the fans around with goals and assists.
La Liga's president Javier Tebas recently confirmed that Atletico Madrid have filed an official complaint against Barcelona over the transfer of Antoine Griezmann. Los Rojoblancos insist that Blaugrana reached an agreement with the Frenchman back in March thus demand that his earlier release clause (€200m) is paid in full.
When asked about the case, the 28-year-old revealed he prefers not to think about it:
"I don't want to think about it. It's a topic which hurts me, but it is what it is. These things happen in football. Now my focus is only on Barca and trying to learn how to pressure high up the pitch and improve."
Regarding his infamous 'The Decision' documentary, Antoine stays positive:
"I can understand that some of them [the fans] would be angry but I'll try to win them over with assists and goals. I'm desperate to test that connection with the fans, that they enjoy watching me and I enjoy playing for them."
Antoine made his pre-season debut against Chelsea earlier this week. Later on, he started his second game, this time against Vissel Kobe. Although he is yet to score a goal for Blaugrana, many have already praised his good link-up and off the ball work.
