'It’s Messi making Griezmann flat in front of goal?': Barca fan sends wake-up call to Frenchman
There might be something going on in all this Messi-Griezmann thing but for what it's worth, Leo can't be blamed if Antoine is not up to it. A Barca fan from Tribuna.com will explain better👇
Our user Sunday Oghene sends his message: "I don’t understand people’s thinking sometimes. So, it’s Messi that made Coutinho not to shine or it’s Valverde? It’s still Messi that’s not making Griezmann shine now and also Valverde? You guys amaze me.
"It’s Messi that caused Griezmann to be losing scoring chances? It’s Messi that’s making Griezmann be flat in front of goal? All those matches Messi wasn’t playing at the beginning of the season, what difference did Griezmann make? Instead of encouraging Griezmann to step up his game and play better for us, some of you are here saying funny things. You all will blame Valverde for everything."
💬It's obvious who the bigger threat is out of the two:
He really emphasises: "It was Valverde that made Coutinho throw [a] one on one away at Anfield when Messi set him up with a through pass? You guys should direct your criticism well to the appropriate quarter. Griezmann should step up his game.
"Even in the French team, he’s not playing as he used to. Missing penalties and not even scoring. He should step up. Messi has no hand in this, nor does the coach. Stop pointing accusing finger to the wrong place."
Here's Grizy scoring against Barca:
He concludes: "Dembele came, [and] if not for his incessant injuries, he fit in immediately. Why couldn’t Coutinho fit in well? What’s d problem with Griezmann? This has absolutely nothing to do with Messi or Valverde. GRIEZMANN, STEP UP UR GAME."
❓ Have we seen Griezmann at, at least, 70% of his ability?
