La Liga never opened a case against Griezmann following Atletico Madrid's complaint
- Atletico accused Barca of breaking the rules in Antoine's transfer.
- Los Rojoblancos filed an official complaint against Barcelona.
- Nonetheless, Griezmann was ellegible to play against Athletic Bilbao.
- Diario Sport say it was possible because the accusations were unfounded.
Although not too impressive, Antoine Griezmann made his official debut for Barcelona in the La Liga opener against Athletic Bilbao.
According to Catalan outlet Diario Sport, the Frenchman was eligible to play because La Liga never opened a case over his registration rights. As a reminder, there had been doubts whether the 28-year-old would be allowed to play league football because of Atletico Madrid's complaint.
Reportedly, La Liga transferred Los Rojoblancos' complaint to the La Liga Licencing Committee. However, the officials failed to find any reasons to disqualify the 28-year-old from playing as there were not enough evidence to ban the player or punish the Catalan club.
Nonetheless, the case remains open at the Spanish Football Federation but it's unlikely that there will be any sanctions against Barca.
As a reminder, the Madrid club have accused Blaugrana of reaching an agreement with Griezmann back in March. If that were true, Barcelona would be obliged to pay his previous release clause of €200m in full, instead of the €120m paid by the Catalan giants.
Los Colchoneros' president even claimed that the club has evidence of earlier contacts between the parties. However, considering the latest updates, none are enough to prove Barca guilty.
