Griezmann, the terrible announcement


By: Manu Tournoux

Antoine Griezmann could see his dream of competing in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games disappear.

Last June, Antoine Griezmann loudly proclaimed his desire to participate in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. “If I am called (to do the Olympics, editor’s note), I will put extraordinary pressure (on his club, editor’s note) so that they let me do them. It's a dream, it's a goal, it's in France, it's representing France. Everyone watches the Olympics. I want and it would be a dream to be able to experience this from the inside”he declared.

Yes but there you have it, according to information disclosed this Tuesday by RMC Sport, Atlético Madrid “isn’t hot” to free the Mâconnais for the Paris games, which will take place from July 26 to August 11. If nothing has been done yet, this is the trend of the moment.

Griezmann and Henry do not admit defeat

However, “Grizi” should not give up and do everything possible to convince his leaders to let him participate in the biggest sporting event on the planet. “The end of the season will be important, as will the change of physical trainer”adds the French media.

Espoirs coach, Thierry Henry is well aware that it will be complicated to convince foreign clubs to release his French players. The ex-Gunners legend, however, does not admit defeat. “When I arrived, I spoke about the coach before (Sylvain Ripoll) and the difficulty of his task, did he declare. JI suspected it. Clubs abroad don't see the situation the way we do. So for them, it's no, said the former center forward. I suspected it, but I usually don't stop at the first no. We will try to see what we can do, but in the end, and unfortunately, the decision comes down to the club, because the Olympics are not on FIFA dates. You can't bluff without having the cards in hand. »
