Barcelona Fans Think Lionel Messi Doesn't Trust Antoine Griezmann

Barcelona Fans Think Lionel Messi Doesn't Trust Antoine Griezmann

Barcelona fans think that Lionel Messi does not trust Antoine Griezmann after not passing to him against Slavia Prague in the Champions League.

Barca drew with the Czech side 0-0 and Barca fans noticed a key moment in the game which saw Messi ignore Griezmann and try to score a sublime solo goal.

We know that Messi is blessed with the talent to pull off those scintillating runs but the opportunity to lay it off for Griezmann would have given him a clear chance at goal.

Barca fans think it's becoming a recurring issue at the Nou Camp and that Messi is purposely ignoring the 28-year-old and vice versa.






Stats emerged after the game showing the duo barely linked up in the game either.



Messi passed to the Frenchman four times while Griezmann only passed to the Barca captain once.

It's no secret how much Messi enjoys playing with Luis Suarez but the Uruguayan was missing from today's game due to injury.

That meant the attacking responsibility fell on Messi, Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele.

It's alarming considering the pair were playing alongside one another in attack, with Griezmann on the left wing and Messi in the striker role.

The draw against Slavia will see more pressure mount on boss Ernesto Valverde especially after a 3-1 defeat to Levante last weekend.

The failure to get the best out of summer signing Griezmann has irked many Barcelona fans who wanted the former Atletico Madrid man to be a key player.

But he has found himself played out of position frequently and is not replicating the form that saw him come third in the Ballon d'Or rankings last year.

If he isn't linking up with Messi with much fluidity, then it could cause big issues at Barcelona in the near future.
