The coach of the French national team, Didier Deschamps, is not worried about Antoine Griezmann who is still not showing off his appearance at Atletico Madrid.
After an unsatisfactory performance with Barcelona, the 30-year-old footballer returned to Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2021 on loan.
The return of Antoine Griezmann to last season’s La Liga champions is expected to revive his declining football career at Barcelona. However, he has only scored one goal and has yet to provide an assist in seven appearances in his second spell with Atletico Madrid.
The only goal scored by the player was when Atletico Madrid won 2-1 against AC Milan in the Champions League competition on September 29 yesterday. Meanwhile, when he won 20 against Barcelona in the Spanish League, he only played from the bench. At that time, he replaced Luis Suarez.
Although Antoine Griezmann’s performance was still mediocre, Didier Deschamps still called him up to strengthen the French football team in the international match this October. In fact, he was not at all worried about the player’s performance. Instead, he believes his goal against Milan could improve his game again.
Speaking to the media, Didier Deschamps said the goal scored by Antoine Griezmann was very good. According to him, his goal can give him confidence in competing.
Deschamps said the former Real Sociedad player returned to Atletico Madrid in a different atmosphere. He explained that the difference is the players in the team. Although still not good, but the coach of the French football team still believes in his quality and mind.
For information, the French national team will face Belgium in the semifinals of the UEFA Nations League on Friday (8/10) early morning WIB. So far, Antoine Griezmann has earned 98 international caps for Les Bleus and scored 41 goals.
