Former Barcelona player Christophe Dugarry has launched a bizzare attack on the current Barcelona captain Lionel Messi and teammate, Antoine Griezmann.
Griezmann has been thrown into a sea of controversy of late because of the lack of quality game time he has received since the resumption from the Covid-19 hiatus.
Dugarry maintained that Griezmann’s struggle to land a relevant role is down to lack of harmony at the camp nou and this statement of his, has caused outrage throughout the world of football.
“What is he afraid of?” Dugarry said , referring to Griezmann.
“A guy (Messi) who is 1.50 metres tall and who is half autistic?.The only thing he has to do is grow some balls at some point.
“People has been saying he has a problem with Messi, he should go talk to Messi to resolve the problem”.
Dugarry also hit out at Quique Setien who has come under immense pressure at the Camp nou.
“He is not a decisive coach. Setien is very nice but he doesn’t have the right credentials – he didn’t know who to change,”
Dugarry later apologised for his statement saying he did not at any point want to stigmatise or laugh about people with autism disorders.
“That was not my intention, am sorry to anyone i offended”.
