Antoine Griezmann is committed to success with Barca
Barcelona striker Antoine Griezmann made it clear that he is committed to success at the Camp Nou. The Frenchman received a fair amount of criticism in his club debut season, but he remains eager. “I want to be a key part of the team, on and off the field, enjoy football and help my team-mates win every game,” Griezmann told Barcelona’s official club media. LaLiga is about to return this week, with Barcelona, about to go to Real Mallorca on June 13, and Griezmann believes the break was beneficial for him. Antoine thinks that it was good for him on a personal level. “I was able to rest. I think it has been five years since I was so relaxed, so it has been good morally and physically.
Barca will be able to call upon Luis Suarez because the coronavirus-enforced stoppage of football allowed the Uruguayan to recover from knee surgery, which Griezmann is happy. “Louis is our No.9 goalscorer, the one who makes the balance in major games with Leo Messi,” he said. “The team miss him in the last games before the break. So we are happy that a player like him has returned, and he will help us from the beginning.” Currently, Barcelona at the top of the table are two points ahead of Real Madrid, and Griezmann believes that the Cules will have to get the most points from the remaining 11 games. “We have all the cards; we have 11 matches left, and if we win all of them, we will be champions,” he said. “I think we are ready for this, for victory and enjoying the football.”
