Antoine Griezmann Calls Out Publication Who Compared Barcelona's Ansu Fati To 'Black Street Vendors'

Antoine Griezmann Calls Out Publication Who Compared Barcelona's Ansu Fati To 'Black Street Vendors'

Antoine Griezmann has leapt to the defence of Barcelona teammate Ansu Fati after the teenager was compared to 'black street vendors' by a member of the Spanish media.

Fati scored on Tuesday night as Barcelona romped to a 5-1 victory over Ferencvaros, and he became the first player in history to score two Champions League goals before turning 18.

But Spanish outlet ABC have taken attention away from his performance after reporter Salvador Sostres said the 17-year-old reminded him of 'black street vendors' who evade the police.

Griezmann took to Twitter on Wednesday to condemn the article and stated: "Ansu is an exceptional kid who deserves respect like any human being. No to racism and no to bad education."

Multiple reports claim Barcelona are seeking legal action against Sostres for the article, while ABC are yet to comment at the time of writing.

Fati has established himself as one of football's most promising talents and has netted four goals in five games for the Blaugrana this season.

He told reporters per Marca that he manages to score so many thanks to the delivery of his teammates.

"My teammates make it easier for me to score. It is a fantastic pass from [Frenkie] De Jong and I just had to finish.

We played a good game. We had a hard time getting into the game.

"Sometimes we have the problem that if we lower the intensity and let the opponents play, we are in trouble. If we command the rhythm of the game, we are very good.

"There was a great Barca in the first 20 minutes of the second half. It should be noted how the team has played with one less. We are able to hold and score goals with one less."
