Antoine Griezmann is “annoyed” at Barcelona’s dressing room for rejecting him, according to Diario SPORT. The article says Griezmann read a report also from SPORT that the Barcelona players vetoed the Frenchman’s signing, and was exasperated by their decision.

The Atlético Madrid forward has been linked with a move to Barça a year after he controversially decided, at the last minute, to reject the Catalans having reportedly previously agreed to join them.

SPORT says Griezmann has gone as far as to reach out to the players directly to try to build bridges, but so far he has gotten an icy reception.

The report goes on to say that he wants to join Barça and is awaiting with baited breath a call from the club: either to confirm to him he won’t come, or to tell him they are willing to sign him.
