Lionel Messi And Antoine Griezmann Do Not Speak To Each Other In Training

Lionel Messi And Antoine Griezmann Do Not Speak To Each Other In Training

Griezmann was a high-profile signing in the summer and has failed to connect with Messi since completing his £107 million transfer.

The struggles between Messi and Griezmann were plain to see on Tuesday as Barcelona fired blank against Slavia Prague in the Champions League.

And El Chiringuito report that Messi and Griezmann do not speak to each other in training, strengthening claims that they've clashed.

Last month, the Frenchman opened up about his struggles with Messi.

"Messi is not someone who talks a lot, and neither am I, so it is a little difficult for us to communicate," he said.

"I got him some mate (South American drink), so I think we're going in the right direction. But we must learn to make a connection, to improve it. I'm here to help."

Gerard Pique has played down a rift between them and insists they get on.

"It's really good," he said. "Leo and Antoine get on just like Leo does with Dembele or Pedo or Villa. They get on well. With Luis, they're practically like brothers and then after that there are different relationships.

"Just because he doesn't get on with Griezmann like he does with Luis doesn't mean they don't get on well."

Griezmann has scored just four goals for his new club while Messi has been instrumental since returning from injury, scoring six goals from 10 games in all competitions.
