Valverde names reasons behind another 'complicated' game for Griezmann
- The coach believes Griezmann has done well despite all negatives.
- The game was tough because Antoine faced his former teammates, Valverde explains.
- Besides, he had a clear goalscoring chance.
- Valverde supposes that it'd be better for Griezmann to hold up in that episode.
- Griezmann hit a volley instead.
Speaking in a post-match interview, Ernesto Valverde has defended Antoine Griezmann despite another worrying performance away from home.
"I think he did well.
"It was a complicated game for him because he faced his former teammates.
"He has fought. He had a very clear chance, maybe he should have controlled the ball…"
By the 'clear chance', the coach supposedly means the episode when the MSG trio had a very promising counter which ended in Griezmann's volley that came wide.
