Former Atlético de Madrid coach Radomir Antic has cast doubt over star Antoine Griezmann's potential switch from Atleti to Barcelona.
Former Atlético de Madrid head coach Radomir Antic does not see how Antoine Griezmann will fit at LaLiga champions Barcelona. Griezmann is reportedly ready to join Spanish giants Barça after confirming on Tuesday that he will leave Atlético following five years in Madrid.
Wrong player for Barcelona's style
The 28-year-old French World Cup winner spurned a move to Camp Nou 11 months ago but a blockbuster transfer to Ernesto Valverde's side appears back on. However, Antic – who guided Atlético to a LaLiga and Copa del Rey double in 1996 – cast doubt over star Griezmann's potential switch. "Given how Barcelona play, I don't see where he would fit," the 70-year-old told reporters.
Griezmann's successes at Atleti
Griezmann – who arrived from Real Sociedad in 2014 – has won the Europa League, UEFA Super Cup and Supercopa de España with Atlético. He has scored 15 LaLiga goals for second-placed Atlético and 21 in all competitions this season as the capital club reached the Champions League last 16.
