Antoine Griezmann’s happiness at Barcelona seems to be the topic of much conversation at the moment.

Eric Olhats, the scout who discovered Griezmann and took him to Real Sociedad, has said it’s obvious the Frenchman is not enjoying life at the Camp Nou.

“I can understand why he would want to sign for Barcelona. Barca is Barca.

“Other players and friends said that his game was going to fit in and adapt very well to the way Barca play, tiki-taka and all that, but I don’t like his performances.

“You see that there are problems, that he isn’t enjoying it.”

Meanwhile, Martin Lasarte, the coach who gave Griezmann his debut at Real Sociedad, reckons the World Cup winner is looking sad at his new club.

“His future there is in question because Barcelona themselves are in a difficult period,”

”We have to look for some scapegoats. We have to look for someone responsible. He’s the last one to arrive, a lot of money was paid for him. It seems to me that they’ve loaded a very heavy burden on him.

”Anybody other than Messi is in question. I see him sad, subdued; he’s not comfortable.”

Griezmann has not had perhaps quite the impact you might expect from a player who cost €100 million, but he has still scored 14 goals in his debut season for Barca.
