Contrary to what many people believed before the start of the season, Barcelona are not having a good time right now, struggling to find a proper form in Spain and Europe. They drew the Champions League opener against Borussia Dortmund before losing their most recent La Liga game against Granada 2-0.

These bad results have raised a lot of concerns around the team, and now we learn that even players are discomfort with all the things happening to the club. Moreover, reports from Spain suggest that Lionel Messi isn’t very happy about summer signing Antoine Griezmann, who has failed to deliver the way the club expected.

It’s been a poor start to the season for the Catalan giants, who have won just two out of their opening six games of the campaign so far, setting the alarms on at the Camp Nou. Messi is reportedly unhappy with Griezmann so far as they struggle to develop an effective connection on the pitch.

It’s fair to say that Lio missed a few matches due to an injury, but even after he came back, the club has struggled to find success, being unable to win and score in their last two games.

According to Don Balon, Messi is not at all happy with Griezmann’s presence in the team, but that’s nothing new. DB notes that part of this unhappiness is because the Argentine wanted his club to re-sign Neymar instead of the Frenchman, who had snubbed a move to Barcelona last summer.

This report suggests that Messi and Griezmann aren’t even on speaking terms, but fans will hope these two talented forwards can fix this for the team’s sake. Griezmann showed a lot of good things with Atletico Madrid; Barca need to give him some time to adapt to the club before he can provide the type of things he did with Los Rojiblancos.
