CAIRO – 26 December 2019: Barcelona signed one of the world’s best players, Antoine Griezmann, last summer to add another magician to their star-studded attacking line.
The French seems to enjoy his time at Barcelona despite playing out of position as the team manager, Ernesto Valverde, uses him as a left winger with more defensive duties.
“I didn't leave Atletico neither to win the Champions League nor to win more trophies. I left Atleti to learn a new style of play, new philosophies.” Griezmann told Marca on Thursday.
The French striker was Atletico Madrid’s biggest star during his spell with Los Rojiblancos and he led them to 2016 UEFA Champions League Final against Real Madrid in Milan where the French missed a penalty during the game paving the way for their rivals to win the title.
Griezmann added "I think it was my penalty that lost us that final. We were so good and I'm sure if we scored that we'd have had another. It will always hurt because it was my goal and dream to win that with Atletico. I can't go back, but that'll hurt in 10 or 15 years as well."
Griezmann aim to achieve is first UEFA Champions League title with the Catalan giants who failed to win the title since 2015.
