Antoine Griezmann has rejoined Atletico Madrid from Barcelona on loan, just two years after leaving the Wanda Metropolitano.
Atletico Madrid sold the French striker to Barcelona for €120million in 2019, yet he has never managed to recapture his best form at Camp Nou.
Messi’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain earlier in August might have given Griezmann the opportunity to take centre stage, but the 30-year-old received booing from the Barca fans as they laboured to win Getafe last weekend.
The Catalans manager Koeman defended him saying: “I don’t like it when a Barca player is whistled. Someone who works like Antoine can never be criticised.”
The central attacking midfielder has enjoyed a great playing time whilst in Atletico and there he is now.
