Both the club and fans have expressed their discontent with the fact that Pique's production company was behind the footage which proved to be a big PR blow for Barcelona.
"I don't think that Pique was responsible for the decision that Griezmann took," Puyol stated at an Aldeas Infantiles charity event. "That he has a producer and that that producer makes a documentary, I don't see anything wrong.
"Many people may think that Pique has been the one who influenced him, but not at all. Griezmann takes his decision and it is a very important one for an external person to influence you on.
"I have no idea what happened [about the deal itself]. I am no longer at Barcelona, I am a fan and you will have to ask them."
