Griezmann’s doubts confirmed

From dream to reality, there’s sometimes just one step. But it can also be a complicated one. Antoine Griezmann could see himself taking part in the next Olympic Games, to be held in Paris in summer 2024. I’ve already said it openly, in the dressing room in Madrid and sometimes here.

From dream to reality, there’s sometimes just one step. But it can also be a complicated one. Antoine Griezmann could see himself taking part in the next Olympic Games, to be held in Paris in summer 2024. I’ve already said it openly, in the dressing room in Madrid and sometimes here. It’s a dream for me, a goal, he declared at a press conference on September 6. A wish that willour Espoirs coach. Antoine Griezmann is no small matter either. The real problem for these players is their physical condition. That’s the real question. After all, there’s a Euro to come. The likes of Mbappé and Griezmann are guys who are going to be playing and perhaps playing close to seventy games.

Authorization uncertain

Antoine Griezmann is well aware that he will need his club’s approval before he can take part in the Paris Olympics, as Benoît Trémoulinas was quick to point out: He’s being cautious. We know ‘Cholo’, the Atlético coach. I’m not sure he’d give him permission to go and play in the Olympics, given that Griezmann is currently a major player in his team, and even Atlético’s best player. So, to play in the Euro and the Olympics in one go, sounds like a lot.

But It’s once in a lifetime. These are players who want to make history (…), so it’s understandable that they want to play (the Olympics). So it remains to be seen whether Antoine Griezmann will be granted a pass to take part in the competition, perhaps alongside Kylian Mbappé.
