Pampering and demanding Griezmann

Griezmann, durante un partido con el Atlético.

Griezmann did not respond this season to what was expected of him when He arrived at Atlético at the last moment of the summer market closing for the 2021-22 season. Simeone understood that with his return the team could take a leap in quality. He did it halfway. Good in Europe and weak in LaLiga, Griezmann was not the one that was thought. It was the same as always in terms of struggle and commitment. But he was far below him in scoring figures. And Atlético accused him.

The French he scored three goals in 26 league games, something inappropriate for a footballer of his talent. He scored a goal in the Cup, in one game, and four in nine of the Champions League. There he was decisive in a very complicated European tournament for the rojiblanco team since the draw for the group stage. In the sports management they know that Griezmann has to be the same as before. He has one year left on loan at Atlético and they hope to see the best version of the Frenchman again. His salary and his role in the team has not been accompanied by a good performance. It’s time to improve. It is true that this season he has had an unknown handicap for him: injuries. An entry by Carvajal against Real Madrid in December left him out of climacteric. He returned in January in the Copa del Rey against Rayo Majadahonda and was injured again.
