Antoine Griezmann Luka modric
The Bulgarian has been quite critical of the French footballer of Barcelona, who does not understand that he does not finish starting at such a big club. “You see him suffering when he plays with Barça and sometimes it can happen that, when you have a player like Messi, it is normal that the new one does not feel the reference. But I think that Griezmann is being affected more than usual ”. At the moment he trusts that he can reverse the situation with the help of Koeman, who says he trusts him and can help him regain his best version by adding that, "It is clear that Griezmann does not seem the same player as he was at Atlético, but now without Suárez he will have more opportunities to show his talent ”.
He has not cut a hair when analyzing the words of the French coach, where he wanted to comment that, “What Deschamps says are excuses to justify Griezmann, he affirms that Griezmann is not happy at Barcelona, but those are excuses to justify their poor performances. In his opinion, these statements are not doing the player any favors.
Despite everything, he has no doubt that Barcelona will continue to compete. “They have the quality to continue being the favorites in Spain, along with Real Madrid. Look at it from the other side: Coutinho is playing very well and they can try to relaunch Dembélé. Yes, without a doubt they have the quality to be a very competitive team ”.
On Dembelé himself, who was rumored to end up in his Manchester, he wanted to analyze the movements of the Blaugrana, “I was surprised by the activity of Barcelona in this transfer market, forced to sell players and with hardly any incorporations”
Praises to his former teammate Luca Modric
"I have no doubt that he is one of the three-four best midfielders of the last decade. Luka is at the level of Iniesta or Xavi Hernández, without a doubt. It is no coincidence that in this decade he has been the only player capable of breaking the dominance of Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the Ballon d’Or “and added that,” With 35 years and his quality, if he takes care he can play until he gives him the win ”.
It is evident that Berbatov has affection and only good words for the Croatian, highlighting his ability to read the matches, as well as regulating his forces and energies, to end by saying that, "Modric is not playing, he is flying with Real Madrid and he is still in the form he is now, he may have several more years of career at the highest level. And that would be wonderful"
"Solskjaer pressure “will only grow”
On the United crisis, he believes that "the pressure on Solskjaer “will only grow.” “Maybe Pochettino is ‘the man’, but lately everyone is ‘the man’ at United: Moyes, Van Gaal, Mourinho … They were all the next savior.” Berbatov also applauded the signing of Cavani. “I am a huge fan of his game. I only have the doubt of why they have not signed him before. Some will say that it is a reinforcement of panic, but it was clear that United were looking for a forward, “he said.
“With Liverpool 7-2 I thought… but what am I missing…?
Deschamps defends Griezmann … and attacks Koeman!
Berbatov: "The Barça of 2009 and 2011 is the best team that I faced"
In reference to the Premier, Berbatov was more than sincere when assessing the two goals of the last day, Tottenham’s 1-6 against United and Aston Villa’s 7-2 against Liverpool. “When I saw that they scored seven goals I thought… but what the hell is this? One of the most brilliant champions and they score seven… amazing ”, he stated emphatically, as is usual for him.
It goes without saying that the benefits of Antoine Griezmann when he dons the ‘bleu’ of France multiply. Under Didier Deschamps’ orders, he feels supported, confident and, most importantly, his teammates make him a participant and essential in the offensive deployment. The breaking marks do not fall on deaf ears. The performance is incomparable to what it offers in Barcelona.

The ‘Prince’ breathes a sigh of relief defending his national team and this can be seen in his body language, much more relaxed and relaxed, which allows him to be more precise and quick in the execution. Help that ‘other’ Griezmann start from the midfielder, heeling slightly to the right, his preferred location on the pitch, where he can shoot Mbappé at speed or enter from the second row with the balls off the hook by Giroud.
France and Portugal, respect between champions
Against Croatia in Zagreb he will start again. Deschamps does not doubt his qualities. The one from Baiona breaks one and my spears for him, and reserves a place for him in the eleven. The coach, however, will introduce some change with respect to the team that equaled zero against Portugal. One modification per line, except in goal. There will be Hugo Lloris, who saved his team at the last gasp from a lethal left-foot from Cristiano Ronaldo. The left lane could change from Lucas. Hernández would cede the position to his namesake Digne. Magnificent the former Blue in the win against Ukraine generating constant danger. Tolisso and Martial would replace Rabiot and Giroud, respectively.
After beating Sweden with a last goal from Kramaric, Croatia could secure their permanence in League A with a win against their executioner in Russia 2018. Will the third time be beaten against France?

Kulusevski continues to speak on the European football scene at the start of the season.

Modric and Perisic. Those were the only two players from Croatia’s eleven who were also starters in the 2018 World Cup final (Vida and Brozovic were out due to coronavirus). The Croats are undergoing a generational change to which they are not knowing how to adapt, and the game against Sweden was a clear example.
First part of greater possession of Croatia but ineffective, with a very slow football, far from the electricity that has characterized chess players in recent years. Just a distant shot from Perisic put Olsen in trouble, and Sweden on the counterattack was able to generate more danger on Livakovic’s goal, mainly with the incidence of Forsberg, the most active of the Nordics.
The main must of this Croatia of 2020, compared to 2018, is defensive fragility. Sweden had only scored one goal in the previous four Nations League games, but were already leading 2-0 at halftime. A great individual play by Kulusevski, and a header off a Danielson corner put the Swedish team ahead.
Kulusevski was Sweden’s main offensive weapon. He generated both space and foot, and his corpulence made life impossible for the Croatian centrals. He scored and was able to give several assists, but his teammates did not materialize very clear chances. It seems that there is a forward for a while. His breakthrough in Juve and in European football is showing great promise, and with the goal against Croatia he made his debut with his national team’s jersey. He paints to be the first of many, but in football you never know.
Modric and Kovacic were very alone in the Croatian midfield and were not able to generate danger in the Swedish area. In addition, one of the main problems for Croatia was the lack of depth in bands, which prevented sending centers to Budimir to take advantage of one of the main weapons of the Osasuna forward.
Joining lines with their usual 4-4-2 and waiting in their own field was enough for Sweden to achieve their first victory in this Nations League. Now, tied at three points with Croatia, both teams will compete for the last place on the last day against France and Portugal, who at the same time will be playing for access to the final phase.
