Lionel Messi Appears To Snub Antoine Griezmann's Handshake

Messi didn't play a part in Sunday's Joan Gamper Trophy match, but he attended the Camp Nou as he watched on from the bench.

However, summer signing Griezmann started in attack before being substituted in the second-half and when he left the field, it looks like Messi blanked him when he approached the Barcelona captain.

The Frenchman shook hands with various coaches yet didn't get anything back from Messi who stared in the distance.

Despite the frosty-looking reaction, he's excited to link-up with Messi and he's even thinking about him in bed.

"He's the best. When he talks, the whole world listens. He knows this," the £107 million man said about the Argentine maestro.

"I want to meet him, get to know him, watch him in training, play alongside him, provide assists. I've thought about it when I'm in bed, at training, and watching videos.

"You make the 'film' in your head and I know it'll go well. It'll be really nice."

Messi, meanwhile, issued his traditional pre-season speech as he addressed the club's fans ahead of the 2019/20 term.

"It's hard to say something after last season, but I don't regret anything," he said.

"But I have no doubt that together we are going to fight again for everything. We won eight League titles in 11 years. We do not give it the value it deserves but over the years we will see how difficult it was.

"This club fights for everything and this year will be no different. We have renewed dreams. Visca Barca and Visca Catalunya!"

The 32-year-old is a doubt for the start of the new campaign after suffering a calf injury. He's set to miss their US tour as he faces a race to be fit for their La Liga opener against Athletic Bilbao.
