Angry Barca Fans Mob Antoine Griezmann’s Car Over Lionel Messi

Furious Barcelona fans reportedly surrounded Antoine Griezmann's car to demand he show respect to teammate Lionel Messi.

The 29-year-old has not been able to settle at the Nou Camp since his £108million move from Atletico Madrid in 2019.

Part of those troubles stem from several reports that the Frenchman has a fractured relationship with the Barca captain.

Tensions reignited last week after the striker's uncle took a dig at the six-time Ballon d'Or winner by claiming Barca training sessions are designed to make him look good.

But the Argentine has already hit back to claim that he is ‘tired of always being the problem' at the Catalans.

And it seems Barca fans have sided with their main man after several supporters were filmed hounding Griezmann's car as he left the club's training ground on Thursday night.

Footage captured by Spanish outlet Gol showed those who backed their captain shout ‘respect Messi' at French International Griezmann.

Yet other fans on social media felt the stunt went too far and rushed to defend the ex-Atletico Madrid star.
