Frenchman Antoine Griezmann is excited to be playing alongside Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele, and he cannot wait to play alongside Lionel Messi.

Attacker Antoine Griezmann is in awe after playing alongside his new Barcelona teammates.

And the Frenchman believes he has found the club where he will develop his talents better.

“No, there are no problems. If there were, I wouldn’t have come here,” he told Sport.

“I’m desperate to meet Leo, to play with him, with Luis Suarez, Ousmane Dembele.”

Asked about a trident with Griezmann, Messi, and Suarez, he said it looks “Very good! On paper, it sounds really good.”

“Later you have to show it out on the pitch, but I trust us, I trust the team. There’s also Ousamane, Malcom, Philippe (Coutinho) too,” he added.

“There’s a lot of top quality attackers who I’m sure will help the team do great things.”

Griezmann continued: “You’ll have seen my matches with Atleti. For me, that isn’t a problem.”

“The opposite, in fact! The more balls I win back defensively, the better I feel and the more confidence it gives me,” he commented.

“That isn’t a problem for me or my teammates. The hard work and effort to win things won’t be an issue.”

“In the end, everyone thinks how they want to think. Without Cholo [Diego Simeone] I wouldn’t be here. I owe him a lot. He made me very complete and thanks to him I won the Europa League and the World Cup,” he concluded.
