Setien: “I’m not going to apologize to Griezmann.”
Quique Setien doesn’t trust Antoine Griezmann. Setien is going to meet and talk with the Frenchman today. But he is not going to apologize to him.
After the match with Atletico Madrid (2: 2), Barcelona’s head coach, Quique Setien, mentioned about the allocation of short playing time for Antoine Griezmann.
Recall that the last time the French player spent full time on the field was during the match against Leganés (2: 0) on June 16. After that, Griezmann played 14 minutes with Sevilla (0: 0), 65 minutes with Bilbao Athletic (1: 0), and 10 minutes with Vigo Celta (2: 2). And, yesterday, he got involved in the 90th minute of the game with Atletico Madrid.
“I will definitely talk to Griezmann. I’m not going to apologize to him, but I know he feels very bad. I am sorry for him because I know he is a professional player and a wonderful person.
Riqui Puig did an excellent job. Like Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez always deserves to be on the field. It is not easy to find a place for Griezmann on the pitch without destabilizing the team, ”Mundo Deportivo quoted the 61-year-old specialist as saying.
Antoine Griezmann has made 32 appearances in La Liga this season, scoring eight goals and assisting four.
Recall that after the restart of the season, Barcelona has already played six matches, won only three of them, and played the same number of draws. There are 70 points in the Catalans’ assets at the moment, and they are one point behind Real Madrid. However, if Getafe win their match in the 33rd round against the “Royal Team” today, the difference will increase to 4 points. So, the chances of winning will be significantly reduced for Blaugrana.
