Antoine Griezmann admits he wants Barcelona No7 shirt

Barcelona attacker Antoine Griezmann admits he misses the No7 shirt.

Arriving this summer from Atletico Madrid, the €120m signing took the No17 shirt at Barca as the No7 shirt is occupied by Philippe Coutinho, despite him currently being on-loan with Bayern Munich.

Playing online with his eSport team, Grizzi Esport, Griezmann took some questions from fans and admitted: "I would like to recover the number 7..."

He also said, "Confinement is going well, but nothing can be done. I miss soccer enormously. I have no idea when the competition will resume, I do not know when I will resume training."

On postponing the Euros until 2021, Griezmann added: "I am disappointed with the Euro Cup but it can be better because we (France) had many injured this season."
