Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele have always seemed like good friends. The two of them are often pictured joking around both at Barca training sessions but also France sessions.

So it’s no surprise that after Dembele’s injury over the weekend that Griezmann was quick to send a message of support to his teammate. Dembele tweaked his knee in France’s 1-1 draw with Hungary and as a result, won’t appear for France in the rest of Euro 2020.

“There are dribbles, hooks, goals, injuries… but above all there is the man! Another obstacle to overcome on your way but you will come back stronger! I’m sad to see you cut off that euro, but know that you’ll be on the pitch with us”

The injury comes at a brutal time for Dembele. Not only will he now miss the remainder of Euro 2020, but his contract also ends next summer, and was in the middle of having Barca either make an extension offer or sell him. Let’s hope this isn’t anything serious.
