    THAT'S MY FUCKING MANAGER ERNERSTO BLUD VERDE

    The sporting staff recommended against the signing of Griezmann, and Valverde was not keen either. One day, Leo Messi asked Ernesto Valverde what position Griezmann would play if he was signed. Valverde simply lowered his head and did not say a single word.

    So Messi didn't want Antoine after all. Or perhaps he did, according to other reports. It's all bullshit in my opinion. No one knows anything about what happens behind closed doors.
    If it's true though, it means EV had a functional brain at least.

    Griezmann was Barto's signing. That has always been pretty much clear to me.

    " Valverde was completely against Griezmann and Coutinho, he doesn't understand how number 10s fit into a 433 system with Messi"

    Valverde speaks!

    " was I too inexperienced for the champions league? I don't think so, I don't want to get into details now but the players all knew what to do once the opposition began to tire, I kept them on rather than make changes because of the game plan we agreed on together, if you want to know why we lost look at the chances missed each away leg compared to the chances we conceded. I am sad for the fans truly, we all wanted to bring back the champions league and we could have done it both times."

    "A return to management? Maybe"

    " Arguments with Messi and Iniesta? It's better people do not know the truth"
