In Barcelona's cricket pot,

Antoine Griezmann

was still missing

to say his.

He chose French for the grateful television format (#Vamos), with

Jorge Valdano

as an interlocutor, and choosing a message with a conciliatory air.

The main objective was none other than to preserve the relationship with

Leo Messi

after the latest outbursts against the Argentine from a relative and a former agent of the former Atlético striker.

But also to demand, especially from the media, a truce in the usual criticisms: "That they don't hit me so many sticks. I want them to leave me a little bit in peace."

There has not been a day that has not been speculated on the relationship between Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann.

It was like this since the French forward, through a documentary produced by Gerard Piqué and which his parents did not like [The Decision], rejected Barcelona after the Argentine had publicly demanded his signing.

Griezmann was clear in his talk with Valdano: "I came to a Barcelona that I had rejected a year earlier. There were comments in the dressing room, from journalists, from the fans ... I said I would apologize on the pitch. And what if someone did I had been offended, it would make me forgive. "

And he continued: "I spoke with Leo. He told me that when I rejected Barça the first time, it screwed him up. It hurt because he had made public comments [in favor of his signing]. But he also told me that since he was in his team He would go to death with me. And that's what I feel and feel every day. "

From there, Griezmann tried to explain what happened with an uncle of his,

Emmanuel Lopes

, who assured in a documentary that the training sessions in the Barça first team were designed "to please certain people" [in reference to Messi].

Or the statements of a former collaborator of his,

Éric Olhats

, who assured in

France Football

: "Leo is emperor and monarch. He did not see Antoine's arrival with good eyes. His attitude was deplorable (...). It is the regime of terror. Either you are with him, or you are against him. "

Regarding Olhats, Griezmann assured in his interview with Valdano that he has not been related to him since his wedding day: "And since my parents and my sister - his representative - do not speak publicly, he picks up the phone and can do a lot of damage. Besides creating doubts in my relationship with Messi. "

About his uncle he said that he does not know "anything" about football, and that he hardly ever sees him once a year.

"I already told Leo that I have nothing to do with them. I don't even have his phone number about my uncle."

In addition to thanking

Ernesto Valverde

for betting on his signing and admitting that he is still angry with

Quique Setién

for taking him out to play four minutes against Atlético, Griezmann asked for help from the media environment.

Over and over again: "It's always a non-stop. Anyway, I stand up, because I never speak. But there is always something wrong. If it is not for Leo, it is because of some presidential candidate who thinks whether or not I am a good signing. In the end, I don't finish enjoying myself. I can't be calm. "

To finish assuming: "I accept criticism because the best Griezmann is not being seen. But I need help from everyone. I am an easy target.
