Barcelona president Joan Laporta spoke to Esport3 and one of the topics was Antoine Griezmann, given back to Atletico Madrid on loan.

“He was not the player we needed,” admitted the Barcelona chief. “I think he could have given more but the circumstances were complicated. Maybe he didn’t fit in the Barça system.”

He did say that Griezmann’s attitude “was always correct” and that he’s “very alive, last year he scored goals, especially in the Copa del Rey.”
