Antoine Griezmann came out with some pretty interesting comments on Thursday during a promotional event for Puma.

The Frenchman was in attendance along with team-mates Luis Suarez, Samuel Umtiti and former Barca star Thierry Henry to show off some new boots.

Griezmann spoke about his playing style and how there’s one skill in particular he is yet to master.

“I don’t know how to dribble, I like to take one or two touches, at pace. I like that the ball comes out cleanly and to shoot at goal.”
