Since his arrival at the Blues in 2014, Antoine Griezmann has established himself as one of the strong men of the team. From the height of his 106 caps and 42 goals, the striker combines experience, high-level experience and performance. Except that he is going through a serious period of doubts. Without a goal for 21 matches in all competitions, the 31-year-old player is no longer the same whether in club, as in selection. Despite this, Didier Deschamps continues to trust him and even takes his defense in a press conference, on the eve of Austria-France.
“I know him well and he has often been more than to his advantage. It’s not his best time today. There is a part of physical, a part of mental. He had his first injury at the start of the year when he had a relapse. It is a bit worn. I know his qualities and his mind, he is not reluctant. It’s not his best period, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to question what he’s capable of doing. He is part of a collective, he is appreciated in the group, I know what he can bring to the collective.assures the coach.
