Antoine Griezmann has denied that there are any problems with Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi, and distanced himself from comments made by his uncle and his former agent.
Over the past month there have been statements from Eric Olhats, who used to represent the Frenchman, as well as his uncle, criticising Messi’s power at the club.
But Griezmann denies their statements, and says he had to put an end to the speculation.
“I have been putting up with comments for a long while and now it’s time to say enough,” Griezmann said an interview with Movistar.
“My agent is my sister, but she doesn’t speak. Neither do my parents. As no one speaks, Eric offers an opinion but that can do a lot of damage and create doubts about my relationship with Leo.”
“Leo knows I have a lot of respect for him. I learn from him.”
“My uncle doesn’t know how football works. A journalist wants a phrase out of you.”
“I told Leo I have nothing to do with them. I don’t speak to them.”
