Quique Setien: 'Antoine Griezmann understands his situation at Barcelona'

Barcelona manager Quique Setien claims that Antoine Griezmann is "a fantastic professional" amid the Frenchman's recent lack of game time at Camp Nou.

Barcelona manager Quique Setien has claimed that his relationship with Antoine Griezmann has not been affected by the Frenchman's recent lack of game time.

The former Atletico Madrid man was only brought on for the dying minutes of Barca's 2-2 draw with his former club, and speculation over a potential exit from Camp Nou has started to gather pace.

Griezmann is rumoured to be on Arsenal's radar ahead of the summer transfer window, but Setien has revealed that he has held positive talks with the attacker amid his struggles.

"He's fine. I have exchanged some words with him. He's a fantastic professional," Setien told reporters.

"He can understand his situation because he has experienced it before. He's professional and an extraordinary lad. It won't affect him because he is very positive. We can count on him 100%."

Barca, who currently lie four points adrift of leaders Real Madrid, continue their quest for La Liga glory as they travel to a high-flying Villarreal side on Sunday evening.
