The Frenchman confesses that there was much stress and pressure as the transfer was being accomplished.
Antoine Griezmann reveals what he felt when his “tortured” transfer to Barcelona was being finalized.
“Well, I called my father and I started to cry with happiness because I was there, everything was done. I was with my friends, my wife and my children and it was an incredible moment,” tells the World Champion in an exclusive interview with MARCA.
The 28-year-old also speaks about the pressure during this period of time.
“There was a lot of stress and pressure to finalize it all. I just wanted to end my holiday and start this new challenge.”
Antoine Griezmann was confirmed as FC Barcelona’s new player exactly a week ago. The Catalans paid his €120m release clause and the Frenchman was free to leave Atletico Madrid and sign a five-year deal with Barca.
