Barcelona directors fear Griezmann will be 'Coutinho repeat'

Barcelona directors are growing concerned over the form of Antoine Griezmann.

While he's had his moments, more was expected inside the club from the Frenchman given the €120m they paid Atletico Madrid this summer.

L'Equipe says there's talk within the boardroom that Griezmann could end up being a repeat of the Philippe Coutinho flop. The Brazil international has since left for Bayern Munich.

There's doubts about where Griezmann can settle in coach Ernesto Valverde's system.

And making things more difficult is the return to full fitness of Lionel Messi.
