Antoine Griezmann told why he refused to move to Barcelona
France striker and Atletico Madrid shared the reasons why he refused the transfer to Barcelona:
“It was very difficult to refuse, but on the other hand was the club that builds the project around me. Meeting with teammates and head coach after one of the matches, which got booed. They supported me and Diego Simeone personally reassured and made it clear that he was confident in me.”
Also the player stated that he did not want to remain in the shadows of the leader of “Barcelona” Lionel Messi:
“I would have been in the shadow of Messi, it must have played a role. In any case, my partners and the club did everything and showed that this is my house and I don’t have to leave.”
