Antoine Griezmann booed by the Wanda Metropolitano, act 2? After the first Champions League meeting of theAthletic, Wednesday night against FC Porto (0-0), the formation of Diego Simeone follows with a second match in his den against Athletic Bilbao, Saturday (4:15 p.m.). The French international was whistled by the Madrid public, during the announcement of the teams and when he came into play. He should experience such a mishap this weekend.
“Grizi”, who had spun to FC Barcelona to the anger of the supporters of Colchoneros, has plenty of time to reconcile with the public of Atléti. It is by stacking goals, as in his first 5 seasons in the capital, that the 2018 world champion will wash his honor. And not by attempts at rehabilitation off the field, as claimed by Anton Meana, a columnist ofThe spar, a program of the Cadena Ser, which obviously has a grudge against the Mâconnais.
“He’s an actor and people don’t believe him”
« Griezmann needs to speak on the pitch, because outside he doesn’t speak honestly. Everything seems artificial, as if he was thinking of everything before, as if his life was scripted. When he celebrates a goal and pretends to throw confetti (with Barça in August 2019, editor’s note), when he dances with his finger on his head, when he does a sketch with Enrique Cerezo (the president of Atlético, editor’s note) on the lawn of the stadium, when he records a documentary with Pique to say that his ‘decision’ is to stay », lance Anton Meana.
The journalist drives the point home: “ It seems to me that everything at Griezmann, off the pitch, is artificial. He’s an actor and people don’t believe him. Griezmann speaks on the pitch, when he scores the first goal at the Metropolitano, when he scores goals in the Europa League final and gives Atlético a title. Everything else around Griezmann is created. Everything is done to make it a movie. This is not what Atlético bought, they bought what is real, his game and his goals ».
After two first scoreless matches (he started against Espanyol, before going out on time), the new red and white number 8 should start alongside Luis Suarez against the Basques Lions.
