PIQUE'S INVOLVEMENT IN GRIEZMANN SAGA -BARCA GETS ANGRY

Griezmann had been tipped to complete a switch to Barcelona after the World Cup, but has instead elected to sign a new deal with Atleti, keeping him at the Wanda Metropolitano until 2023.


The France star confirmed he would stay in Madrid in a documentary on Movistar Plus, which was produced by Pique's investment company Kosmos.

Following the broadcast, Pique tweeted his thanks to Griezmann, wishing him well for the future at Atleti, and has since been force to defend himself, claiming he had no involvement in Griezmann's decision other than to suggest it be filmed.

However, speaking before Eric Abidal's official unveiling as the club's new sporting director, Barca vice-president Mestre expressed his displeasure with Pique's actions, as well as those of Griezmann's international team-mate Samuel Umtiti, who shared the documentary on his social media channels.

"We will speak with [Pique] and Umtiti internally after the World Cup about what happened but we won't make any more public comments," he said.
