Barcelona Fans Think Antoine Griezmann Is Being Ignored By Lionel Messi & Luis Suarez
Barcelona fans think that Antoine Griezmann is being purposely ignored by attacking teammates Lionel Messi & Luis Suarez in games.
The Frenchman has found it hard to adapt to life at Barca since his £120 million move from Atletico Madrid in the summer.
Griezmann replaced Ansu Fati in last night's 5-1 victory over Real Valladolid and he found himself in a great goal scoring position.
However, the World Cup winner found himself ignored by both Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi as a chance went wasting.
You can check out the clip below.
Suarez could've easily passed the ball to Greizmann and he would've easily scored. But he decided to wait and pass it to Messi and I don't blame Messi for not passing it to Griezmann because he wanted that hattrick. #VALVERDEOUT pic.twitter.com/5KhsGJ5gr9- Asmatullah (@asmat_mo) October 30, 2019
Another passage of play showed the 28-year-old making movements to receive the ball but his teammates choosing to ignore him.
The French international looked visibly frustrated by his lack of involvement in the play.
And some Barca fans are starting to feel some sympathy for him.
I really feel sorry for Griezmann. Runs his guts out every game only to be ignored so often by his team mates, including Messi.- Quality gets my money (@Vgamesandsports) October 30, 2019

Messi well played and Barça won, But Messi and Suarez not passing balls to Griezmann is so pathetic.- Atta Mensah Vincent (@Atta_Mensah_V) October 29, 2019
They were doing this to Dembele last season as well, so annoying.
Regardless of how we appreciate him as a player, he hasn't been an example as a captain.#BarcaValladolid pic.twitter.com/OO3U0n9P8q
Do I need to count how many times Griezmann was ignored by both Messi and Suarez?- Griezmann Chief (@Griezmannility) October 29, 2019
Suarez ignored griezmann and tried to pass to messi. HE'S NOT EVEN IN THE FRAME https://t.co/ALtqz09LN4- disco potato (@illAndresYou) October 29, 2019
It's also been reported that Griezmann complained to teammate Nelson Semedo about not being involved in a passing move and he went straight to the changing rooms at full time.
Antoine Griezmann complained to Nélson Semedo about not receiving a pass during the final phase of the game yesterday. He went to the dressing room shortly after the final whistle without greeting the fans. [esporte interativo]- barcacentre (@barcacentre) October 30, 2019
Despite all this leading to the conclusion Griezmann has been a disastrous transfer so far, his stats are respectable.
He's scored four goals in eight games for Barcelona despite being substituted frequently by coach Ernesto Valverde.
Furthermore, he has often been operating as a winger most often than not when he would likely rather be in his usual central role.
But if he is finding it troubling to link up with Lionel Messi on the pitch, then it could spell bad news for his Barcelona future despite how short his tenure has been.
