Barcelona Well received on his first day
Pre-season brought Barcelona‘s players back together on Sunday and it allowed Antoine Griezmann to become acquainted with many of those he’ll be playing alongside in 2019/20, with the Frenchman being warmly received by his new teammates.
Despite concerns about how he would be welcomed, the forward’s first day could hardly have gone better as Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Ivan Rakitic and many more opened their arms to let him in.
Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are two heavyweights yet to return from the Copa America, and two that he’ll be playing directly alongside in the frontline next term, but those present this weekend were happy to see him.
Griezmann already has a relationship with a number of the squad, namely Samuel Umtiti, Jean-Clair Todibo and Clement Lenglet from France duty, as well as Gerard Pique.
