Arsenal target Griezmann almost quit game over multiple rejections

Arsenal target Antoine Griezmann admits he was almost lost to football as a junior.

Griezmann had to move to Spain and joined Real Sociedad to launch his career after suffering rejection in France.

"We tried at a lot of pro clubs with my father. When I went to Metz, I was told that I was almost there, but ultimately it did not happen, it was a big blow. < p> "But my father kept pushing me."

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger confirmed yesterday they have been following him for some time.
