Deschamps not worried by Griezmann’s form: ‘I have no doubt over his abilities’

France boss Didier Deschamps has supported Antoine Griezmann, stating that he does not question the abilities of the French forward. Griezmann is going through a rough period at FC Barcelona, sitting on the bench and showing a poor form when he plays. On Sunday Barcelona also confirmed Griezmann will be out with a muscle injury.

Despite his poor form for Barcelona this season, Griezmann does not have to fear for his position in the national team. “His situation does not worry me. I have no doubt over his abilities. They are inarguable. All players have a period in a year where things are maybe a bit more difficult. He has the mentality to deal with it”, Deschamps told RTL.

The national coach of the 2018 World Champions has been watching football in recent weeks, but doesn’t like it very much. “It is not really football. Normally, there are emotions, full stadiums, but today that is not possible. Even for the players, they are missing adrenaline. It is not complete pleasure, it cannot be.”
