FC Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has responded to Antoine Griezmann's demands about playing in the No.10 role.
France manager Didier Deschamps revealed Griezmann was unhappy with the way he is being deployed under Ronald Koeman at the Camp Nou this season.
Griezmann has usually performed at his best in the number 10 role, but Koeman will not be changing the forward's position anytime soon.
"Everyone has the right to say whatever he wants,” Koeman said, as per Goal.
“I spoke to Antoine yesterday because I wanted to, not because of what he said.
"I told him I want the best for the team and I know he can play on the right side and other positions. It's up to each player to find his own best performance.
"He is already doing all he can do: he works hard, has an excellent discipline and now he must be luckier with his final touch. Against Sevilla there were a couple of times in which he could have done better.
“Regarding his positioning, I remember when I was Netherlands coach, we played against France and he was playing on the right side. It's the coach who makes the orders.”
