REVEALED: Tension between Barcelona teammates Messi and Griezmann

Lionel Messi is yet to fully embrace the arrival of new Barcelona teammate Antoine Griezmann.

AS says there's some tension between the pair, with Griezmann sensing Messi isn't fully supportive of his signing. Indeed, Messi went public last week with his disappointment that Neymar couldn't be re-signed from PSG.

Tuesday's disappointing 0-0 draw at Champions League opponents Borussia Dortmund was Messi's first appearance of the season.

Inside the club, meanwhile, there is confidence the frostiness between the pair will ease once they start winning games together.
