Furious Barca fans surround Antoine Griezmann’s car and demand he should show respect to Lionel Messi after bust-up with Griezmann’s uncle.
Furious Barca fans stunt French international Antoine Griezmann’s car as he leaves training.
Frenchman Griezmann has failed to settle at the Camp Nou since his arrival from Atletico Madrid last season.
Part of those troubles stem from several reports that the 29-year-old has a fractured relationship with Barca captain Messi.
Griezmann admitted last year that they barely talk to each other as such their relationship is not strong.
Tensions reignited last week after Griezmann’s uncle said Messi is the reason for Griezmann’s poor performances at Barca, while claiming Barca training sessions are designed to make him [Messi] look good.
But the six-time Ballon d’Or winner, Messi has already hit back to claim that he is ‘tired of always being the problem’ at the Catalans.
And it seems Barca fans have sided with their main man after several supporters were filmed hounding Griezmann’s car as he left the club’s training ground on Thursday evening.
Footage captured by Spanish outlet Gol shows those who backed their captain shout ‘respect Messi’ at the Frenchman Griezmann.

Some other fans went on social media to denounce the action by criticizing the fans as taking the stunt too far on Griezmann.
However, since Griezmann’s uncle made the Bizarre speech about Messi, Griezmann has said nothing. Nothing is still being said by the French international even after being stunt by the furious Barca fans.
Griezmann is set to face his former side Atletico Madrid this weekend having scored just two goals in Barcelona’s opening seven LaLiga games.
