According to Onze tv3, Antoine Griezmann isn’t happy with some aspects of Koeman’s plans at Barça. The Frenchman, who will come back from international duty to face Getafe on Saturday, reportedly wants to see more of the ball under Koeman for him to do better at Barça.
The forward started the season excited under new management and thought the team would benefit more from looking for him more. He also wants to lead the way at Barça and isn’t happy with the fact that he’s more of a secondary figure in the squad.
Griezmann’s start to the season has been lacklustre, to say the least, and some fans have begun to lose patience with the former Atletico Madrid man. He hasn’t been good enough, and he knows it…
Last week, Didier Deschamps spoke on the matter saying that he reckons Griezmann isn’t used well at Barça, and that he’s better in the middle. This news doesn’t come out as a big shock for anyone that knows Griezmann hasn’t been used efficiently lately.

David Beckham confirms Messi has been mentioned in MLS plans
During the presentation of the new Inter Miami kit, club owner and former football superstar David Beckham confirmed that he has big ambitions for his side. The Englishman has been making major headway since he founded the club, who began playing in Major League Soccer (MLS) last season.
The Miami based club unveiled their secondary jersey, named La Palma on Saturday. Beckham, during the ceremony spoke about his plans for the club, stating how important it is to attract the biggest names in football.
The former Real Madrid and Manchester United man addressed rumours about both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He said: “I know that in Miami our fans want to see great stars. Messi and Ronaldo have been mentioned, have been at the top of their game and have been the best for the last 15 years. We want to attract the best players.”
Speaking about the talent he has already managed to attract, Beckham added: “We already have players like Higuaín and Matuidi who already bring shine and glamour, but in the future we want to have the opportunity to bring big name signings.”
Back when Messi asked to leave Barcelona last summer, the Argentine was linked however briefly to a move to the MLS. Inter Miami, being the most possible suitors. However, Messi ended up staying in Spain after a complicated transfer saga.
There is no doubt that with Beckham at the helm, Inter Miami could attract a ton of big names in the future. However, a move to the States would most certainly be a step sideways for Messi, considering he still has years left at the top in Europe.
