Barcelona Boss Ronald Koeman Explains Why Star Forward Played No Part In Win Over Sevilla

Barcelona head coach Ronald Koeman has said that Antoine Griezmann didn't come on as a substitute during Barcelona's La Liga win over Sevilla purely due to tactical reasons.The Blaugrana won the game up with Lionel Messi and Ousmane Dembele scoring the goals. That win moved them up to second on the league table least temporarily till Real Madrid play Real Sociedad on Monday night.

Griezmann did not even come off the bench during Barcelona win at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan during the post match press conference Koeman said that Griezmann stayed on the bench because Barcelona had changed the system, and that they needed more pace for the new system to work.

The twenty nine year old has tallied twelve goals and ten assists in all competitions this season as Koeman still looks for the optimal way to use the players in his squad. Barcelona have a big month ahead of them now as they look to mount a late push for the spanish League title following Atletico Madrid faltering recent form.
