Barcelona coach Valverde won't guarantee Griezmann recall

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde admits he wants more from Antoine Griezmann ahead of facing Levante.

Griezmann was dropped for the midweek clash against Real Valladolid with Ansu Fati taking his place in the line-up, and Valverde says the Frenchman's spot isn't necessarily a given.

"He is a player who has been playing regularly.

"The other day I made some changes.

"I don't like to talk about indisputable starters.

"He will play if he meets his requirements."
