With Antoine Griezmann's struggles at FC Barcelona having caused a lot of commotion over the past two days, a 1998 FIFA World Cup winner slammed Lionel Messi for his role in the situation during a shocking rant.

Griezmann was brought on for just one minute in FC Barcelona's 2-2 draw with his former side Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, and Barca manager Quique Setien surprised many after the match when he stated that it is "difficult to put him (Griezmann) on without destabilising the team".

During the match itself, though, Christophe Dugarry, who was part of France's World Cup-winning team in 1998, slammed Messi for his role in the €120 million (R2.3 billion) signing's struggles at the Camp Nou with some controversial comments.

"What is (Griezmann) afraid of? A kid who is 1.5 metres tall and half autistic?" Dugarry said during RMC Sport's live broadcast of the game.

Click through the gallery below to see where Griezmann ranks among the Blaugrana's highest-paid stars:

"All he has to do is show some balls at some point.

"I've been saying for a year that he has a problem with Messi. He has to hit him in the face.

"It's true that Messi could give him more passes, but honestly, I am not surprised. Griezmann loses balls, doesn't play with confidence.

"Griezmann should go and talk to Messi to solve the problem."
