At Barcelona, he suffered from so many things, from change of coach, which led to inconsistency in formation, forcing him to play out of position at times to several bouts of injuries.
Griezmann, rejoined Atletico in the January transfer window, on loan, in a bid to rediscover his old form, but he has failed to really click as he’s only been able to have some flashes of his old self while the same issues he’s had at Barcelona (change in formation, injuries and competition) have reared their head again.
Despite all these setbacks, he’s not ready to give up yet and seems to have figured out where it all went wrong and he’s working to fix that, as he said in a recent interview; After being injured, I am trying to recover my best level. I’ve not scored goals and the team has missed that,” he said.
Griezmann, who faces a crucial decision over his future in the coming weeks but he is clear on staying in the Spanish capital. “I have to take my share of the blame for the bad results. “I want to be important and decisive next season, it’s not normal to go so many games without scoring, as I have done.” He further added.
Dormer Real Madrid and Liverpool midfielder, Xabi Alonso could be offered the chance to coach a top team in Europe as Belgian side, Club Brugge are said to be interested in hiring him to become their coach for the new season.
Currently the coach of Real Sociedad B team, Alonso has caught the eyes of observers and Brugge could jump ahead to land him but they will have to wait to see if his team gets relegated from the Spanish division two League or not.
Should they manage to stay up, Alonso will be less inclined to jump ship, as staying could help him land the job with the main team at some point while a relegation would see him take his chances elsewhere. Alfred Schreuder (Club Brugge coach) has agreed to a move to replace Erik ten Hag at Dutch champions Ajax.
