Atletico: Griezmann makes his mea culpa

Held back by a muscle injury, Antoine Griezmann got off to a very bad start in 2022. Very sluggish performances, crisis of confidence, the Atletico Madrid striker is at the bottom of the hole.

Atletico: Griezmann makes his mea culpa

Griezmann is out of order with Atletico.

Where did the great Antone Griezmann (31 years old) go? The one who twice finished 3rd place in the Ballon d’Or (2016, 2018), the one who made the fans of the French team and Atletico Madrid dream? While he spent two more than sluggish years at FC Barcelona, ​​his return to the Spanish capital did not follow the desired trajectory.

A goal in 2022

After an interesting start, including a goal against AC Milan (2-1) and a double against Liverpool (2-3), in the Champions League, the French international has completely disappeared from the radar. The fault is a muscle injury contracted in mid-December, followed by a relapse, which kept him off the field for two months. Since then, the native of Mcon has had a terrible time finding his best level.

If he always remains involved in defensive work, his contribution in front of goal is almost nil. In 16 games in 2022, the French world champion has found the fault only once, marking the fourth achievement of a dark King’s Cup match against Rayo Majadahonda (0-5), January 6. A misery for a player of such caliber who aimed to win back the Colchonero public.

Griezmann doesn’t make excuses

Aware of his difficulties, Griezmann made his mea culpa. It’s true that I didn’t score enough and the team missed it a lot. But I continued to work for the collective, in attack and in defense. I have my share of responsibility for our average results and I naturally accept it dropped the Blue for Movistar.

I hope to start scoring goals again as soon as possible and enjoy being on the pitch , finished Griezmann, who will quickly have to recover. With his 8 goals this season, the historical attacking leader of the French team is abysmal behind some of his compatriots, the image of Karim Benzema (44), Kylian Mbapp (35), Christopher Nkunku (34) or even Wissam Ben Yedder (28).
