Before the media, coach Xavi Hernandez mentioned this story. Accordingly, the Spanish military leader shared when asked about Griezmann’s criticism of Felix, quoted from AS:
“That will be the motivation to play against Atletico. I find Felix motivated, satisfied and happy. I’m delighted with his performance and how he adapted to the team.”
