For Griezmann's dissatisfaction with his playing position in Barcelona, coach Koeman gave a strong response: Barcelona's play, I have the final say.
Griezmann said in an interview with the French team this week: "The coach (Deschamps) knows where I should play. I have grasped this situation, this position, and the confidence of the coach and teammates in me." The French forward This remark was generally interpreted by the media as an indirect expression of dissatisfaction with Coman, because in Barcelona, Coman asked Griezmann to play the right wing, but this was not his favorite position.
To this, Koeman responded very hard: "I talked to Griezman and I told him that I have to consider what is best for the team. I think he is the most effective for us on the right."
"He can play three positions, he can also play the 10th or the 9th position. In fact, when I coached the Netherlands, there was a game against France, and he played the right, the same as in Barcelona."
"I have no problem with Griezmann. In the three attacking positions, I can only send one person to each position. I did not allow any players to play positions that do not belong to him. Griezmann can play with his left foot. If he prefers another position, that’s how he plays inside the wing, but we can’t let all 10 players play the same position."
