Antoine Griezmann's performances have been hot and cold since he joined Barcelona and he remains a constant source of debate among the club's supporters.

After being left on the bench in recent games, coach Ronald Koeman returned him to the starting line up against Paris Saint-Germain in midweek but the Frenchman didn't shine.

Former Barça striker Hristro Stoichkov has added his voice to the conversation, criticising the former Atletico Madrid forward for his form at Camp Nou.

"Whenever Griezmann is on the pitch, Barcelona are playing with 10 players," he told "If they want to do anything in the long-term, they have to sell him. Trincao and Braithwaite should be on the pitch. What's Griezmann doing there?"

The Bulgarian is not convinced what Griezmann's role is in Koeman's team.

As for next season, Barça are looking for a striker to lead their attack. New president Joan Laporta will lead the hunt with names such as Erling Haaland, Memphis Depay and Kun Agüero linked.
