Barcelona: Fans react to Antoine Griezmann tweet

Barcelona: Fans react to Antoine Griezmann tweet

Having signed for Barcelona for £107m during the summer, you would have perhaps expected Antoine Griezmann to feature in his strongest position for the Spanish champions this season.

Would Griezmann be a better striker than Luis Suarez?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, the former Atletico Madrid frontman has been used as more of a left-winger by manager Ernesto Valverde so far.

Griezmann has only played three games in his preferred centre-forward position, but scored twice and assisted twice in those three appearances – a telling sign of his effectiveness up front (via Transfermarkt).

Now, with the recent injury to striker Luis Suarez, it is likely that the France international will get more of a chance to shine as the central striker between both Lionel Messi and Ousmane Dembele on either flank.

Barca fans are clearly excited about the prospect of Griezmann playing in a more central position this evening, when Slavia Prague visit the Camp Nou in the Champions League.

Check out the reactions from supporters to the 28-year-old’s latest Tweet:
