Antoine Griezmann spoke to Movistar LaLiga after this afternoon's 2-2 between Barça and Real Sociedad at Reale Arena - a bittersweet experience for him to score against his old club.

How did you view the game out there on the pitch?

I think both teams had their moments. When we equalised, we were playuing well - full of  confidence abnd creating chances. Then they levelled and had their chances to take the game. They also had control of the ball. It's a shame to draw but we gave everything we had. We have to learn from this game and improve when we meet Real Madrid in El Clásico".

A fair result?

I don't know. I'll have to watch the game again but both teams had chances to win. Now we have El Clásico, we'll see what happens.

You didn't want to celebrate your goal - even though you were whistled by the home fans...

I'll never celebrate if I score here. I scored here when it was the old Anoeta but I have a lot of respect for those who gave me everything. As I say, little by little I'm feeling better. I'm happy with my performances and off the pitch - within the squad, everything's going well. And will only get better.

Did you think Piqué should have got a penalty?

I didn't see it. You're the first one to mention it to me.
