Clement Lenglet says Antoine Griezmann knows he can do better at Barcelona but feels he’s had a decent first season at the Camp Nou.

The French striker has come under scrutiny recently for a lack of goals which has seen him left out of the starting XI by Quique Setien.

Griezmann has gone seven games without finding the back of the net for Barcelona, but Lenglet insists he’s still working hard.

“Antoine is well integrated in the dressing room, really there’s no problem,” he said.

“On the pitch he knows that he can do better. We shouldn’t forget his stats, he’s got 14 goals and various assists, for a first season that’s not bad.

“We are very demanding of him, but I see him working hard in training, he can only improve. I’m sure that everything will go well for Antoine at Barca.”

Griezmann will come up against former side Atletico Madrid tonight at the Camp Nou and will be hoping to start after only being a late substitute last time out against Celta Vigo.
