Antoine Griezmann has opened up on his struggles at adapting to life at Barcelona since moving from Atletico Madrid in the summer.

The World Cup winner was asked about life with Ernesto Valverde’s side after playing in France’s 2-1 win over Moldova in Euro 2020 qualifying on Thursday.

Griezmann was deployed in a central role for Les Bleus and explained how he finds it easier than the wide position he has mainly featured in for the Catalan giants.

“It is certain that playing in the axis is better for me. I have my bearings. I’ve been managing this position for years and years.

“I have a new club. I have to adapt. I am still learning. I knew on arrival that it was going to be hard, I knew it very well.”

France’s win was enough to secure qualification for Euro 2020 with a game to spare. Les Bleus finish off their campaign on Sunday against Albania.
