Getafe vs Barcelona: I am in charge - Koeman fires warning at Griezmann
Oct 18 2020
As for Barca, Messi, Ansu Fati and Antoine Griezmann have returned from their global duties and will play from the starting whistle.
The 29-year-old has registered just one shot on target for the club this season and is yet to create a single chance for a team-mate.
Speaking to the media after the game, the World Cup victor said that he enjoyed the freedom he receives in the French lineup because Deschamps "plays me in my best position". This isn't out of the question, and Koeman pointed it out in his press conference, it won't be an issue if he has to play there.
"Everyone has the right to say whatever he wants", Koeman said.
"I spoke with Antoine [on Thursday] and I told him I'm looking out for the best for the team and I think he's best on the right for us", Koeman said.
"He can also play as a number 10 or a nine, but in the end I decide for the good of the team and every player must give their maximum performance for the team".
"He is already doing all he can do: he works hard, has an excellent discipline and now he must be luckier with his final touch". Will they make it five on the spin Getafe have made quite an impressive start to the new season, picking up seven points from their opening four games.
Griezmann continues struggling to produce his best form for Barca, but was on target for France in the worldwide break and told the press afterward that France coach Didier Deschamps "knows where to play" him. No further discussion is needed on this topic. The centre-back pairing of Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos is probably the best in the league and Madrid count on the duo for a successful title charge.
"I have no problem with Antoine". I never play anyone in a position they can't play. "My game has not changed much even though in the system I am positioned a little higher". He trained with the first-team before the game, as witnessed by "Mundo Deportivo".
The azulgrana team will face Getafe in the league this Saturday, October 17; Ferencvárosi in the group stage of the Champions League, on the 20th; He will play the classic against Real Madrid, on the 24th, and again in the Champions League, but against Juventus, on the 28th. It always depends on the player.
"I hope Marc can be with us soon, but it probably won't be next week". Leo he is a player who, if he does not play, is more exhausted, "he explained".
