Valverde backs Griezmann to flourish alongside Messi and Suarez

Valverde backs Griezmann to flourish alongside Messi and Suarez
The World Cup winner has been tipped to slot right in alongside the Argentina duo up front for the Blaugrana this season

New boy Antonie Griezmman will likely settle well alongside Barcelona veterans Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez when the trio link up for the new season, says coach Ernesto Valverde.

The striker, who arrived from Atletico Madrid as the Blaugrana’s biggest recruit of a busy off-season so far , made his second appearance for the club inSaturday’s 2-0 friendly win against Vissel Kobe in Japan.

The La Liga champions, who also lost to Chelsea in Saitama on their pre-season tour, return to Spain now ahead of the 2019-20 campaign, where they will link up with Argentina duo Messi and Suarez following the duo’s extended post-Copa America break.
