Olhats: "Messi has a bad influence on Griezmann!"


Griezmann's former advisor Eric Olhats thinks that Messi has a bad influence on Griezmann in Barcelona!

Olhats doesn't like Messi's attitude towards Griezmann.

Despite Messi making a lovely dummy 'assist' for Griezmann during the weekend, some still believe that Messi doesn't like Griezmann. One of those people is Eric Olhats, who is Griezmann's former advisor.

Griezmann was signed in the summer of 2019 and it hasn't been a good season and almost a half for him. Despite arriving with a hefty price tag, Greizamann has scored only 15 goals for Barca while also being anonymous in the majority of these matches for Barca.

Olhats believes that there is nothing wrong with Griezmann, and that Messi is the problem.

He explained his view for France Football.

"Antoine arrived in a struggling club where Messi has a view on everything. He’s at the same time emperor and monarch, and he didn’t see Antoine’s arrival with a good eye.

"His attitude has been deplorable, he made him feel that. I’ve always heard Antoine say there’s no problem with Messi, but never the other way around.

"In my eyes, Messi said he wanted to leave to see what role he still had as a decision-making player, regarding the players who arrived and those who left, but he eventually stayed. Classic Messi! As good on the pitch as he is bad off it.

"That clearly left its mark. It was clear and visible. Add to that the president stepping down, the club conceding eight against Bayern and three different managers, the conditions aren’t good. It’s the club that’s sick, not him."

Well, that's one explanation of Griezmann's bad form. It's, basically, a crazy explanation that doesn't make any sense.

There is no proof that Messi wouldn't like Griezmann, and one of the reasons why Messi wanted to go, was because Barca's squad has clearly gone backward.

Griezmann was just one of many 'big' signings from Bartomeu that were more like a panic buy than a well-thought plan.

There are signs that Griezmann is integrating well with this squad. He is more visible, and he is getting into great positions to score goals. The only problem now is that his finishing is more bad than good.
