Antic: Where would Griezmann fit at Barcelona?


Former Atletico Madrid head coach Radomir Antic has expressed doubt over how Antoine Griezmann would fit in to the Barcelona side, as rumours of a potential switch for the French star to the Catalan giants resurface.

Griezmann is reportedly ready to join LaLiga champions Barca after confirming on Wednesday (AEST) that he will leave Atletico following five years in Madrid.

The 28-year-old French World Cup winner spurned a move to Camp Nou 11 months ago, but a blockbuster transfer to Ernesto Valverde's side appears back on.

However, Antic – who guided Atletico to LaLiga and Copa del Rey success in 1996 – cast doubt over star Griezmann's potential switch.

"Given how Barcelona play, I don't see where he would fit," the 70-year-old told reporters.

Griezmann – who arrived from Real Sociedad in 2014 – has won the Europa League, UEFA Super Cup and Supercopa de Espana with Atletico.

He has scored 15 LaLiga goals 21 in all competitions this season as the capital club reached the Champions League last 16 and currently sit second in the domestic league, seven points above cross town rivals Real Madrid.
