Griezmann’s Father has called out FC Barcelona manager Setién.
Antoine Griezmann’s Father Slams Barcelona Boss Setién after yesterday’s draw with Athletico Madrid. The result now puts the Laliga chamipions 1 point behind arch rivals Real Madrid. The striker’s family have defended their son once again as Griezmann’s brother was the first to criticise his substitution, the Frenchman’s father has followed suit and has not hesitated to say a few harsh words to the Barça coach. Of course, he then deleted the post, but it was too late…
Alain Griezmann, father of Barcelona player Antoine Griezmann, harshly criticised Quique Setién after his decisions with his son, following in the footsteps of his other son, Theo Griezmann, the Frenchman’s brother.
“The first thing you need to apologise for is the key to the truck, and that’s not the case with him, because he’s just a passenger,” wrote the Frenchman after the 2-2 draw with Atletico Madrid in which his son was given just four minutes to play.
After the match, Setién was asked in a press conference if he was going to apologize to the French player, who only came on in the 90th minute of the match, to which the coach responded: “I will talk to Griezmann, but I will not apologize”.
For that reason, the Frenchman’s father harshly criticised Setién after the game, before deleting his post shortly after.
This comes just days after Arthur’s mother also criticised Barcelona for their treatment of his son, who has been transferred to Juventus despite not wanting to leave initially.
