Barca’s former striker Hristro Stoichkov chatted a bit about his former club this week. The striker voiced concerns, in a pretty drastic manner, about Antoine Griezmann and his performance at the club.

“Whenever Griezmann is on the pitch, Barcelona are playing with 10 players. If they want to do anything in the long-term, they have to sell him. Trincao and Braithwaite should be on the pitch. What’s Griezmann doing there?”

Just my two cents, this is clearly a bit dramatic. Griezmann is very involved in Barca's movement in the final third. How effective that involvement is, is where I would certainly agree.

Greizmann’s future at Barcelona is constantly up in the air. Hopefully, that future is figured out this summer.
