Antoine Griezmann did not have his best game for BarÃ§a on Sunday afternoon against Getafe. Still not involved in any goal this season in La Liga, he was substituted for the first time this season at the end of the game and received the whistles from Camp Nou. “As a coach, I cannot understand the crowd whistling at one of our players,” Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman commented at a press conference.
“You can whistle if he doesn’t have the right attitude or if he doesn’t work, but Antoine had some difficulty in the game,” added Koeman. ???? hasn’t had as many opportunities as you might hope for, but it’s only a game. ” Note that another French, Samuel Umtiti, also received whistles, even more pronounced, when going to warm up.
Antoine Griezmann has remained silent on FC Barcelona’s first three games this season, but Ronald Koeman was keen to defend his player. “We can ask him to score four goals… But we didn’t create the situations for him either. On the contrary in the second half, we lost a lot of balls.”
After scoring 20 goals in all competitions last season, Antoine Griezmann is expected as an attacking leader in Catalonia, especially since the departure of Leo Messi. But a year ago, he had to wait until Matchday 8 in La Liga to score his first league goal. What did not then prevent it from recovering in efficiency.
