Antoine Griezmann has been talking about his career as a Barcelona player and says his time at the Camp Nou was not a “disaster.”
Griezmann managed 22 goals in 74 La Liga appearances for the Catalan giants after signing in a deal worth €120 million in 2019.
The World Cup winner never looked a good fit for Barcelona but has defended his record at the Camp Nou and says he learned a lot from the experience.
“My time at Barça was not a disaster either, since I always scored almost 20 goals each season. It is a pride for me to have played for Barcelona and I am very happy to have gone there,” he said.
“I had incredible teammates in the dressing room. I learned a lot from the coaches (Ernesto Valverde, Quique Setién and Ronald Koeman), although sometimes I didn’t play and sometimes it was difficult.”
