According to iSports football API,Griezmann has scored 15 goals in all competitions but was left out of the starting lineup for a number of weeks under manager Quique Setien.

Griezmann's brother and father criticised Setien on social media after the Barca boss refused to apologisefor bringing Griezmann on in stoppage time against Atletico.

Sources have told that the club have reassured Griezmann that he is part of their future plans after meeting with his camp this week.

A source with knowledge of the meeting said it went "perfectly," with both the club and the player's camp expressing a desire for the relationship to continue.
