Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has hit back at Griezmann’s uncle Eric Olhats who also served as the Frenchman former agent.
Olhats accused the Argentine of “running a terror regime” at Barcelona.
Olhats told France Football, as per Mundo Deportivo: “Antoine arrived at a club with serious problems where Messi controls everything. He is both emperor and monarch and did not see Antoine’s arrival with good eyes.
“Messi’s attitude has been deplorable, he has made him feel it. I’ve always heard Antoine say that he had no problems with Messi, but never the other way around. It is the regime of terror. Either you are with him, or you are against him.”
In what looks like a response to Olhats comments, Messi said in a brief statement to assembled journalists, whilst leaving the airport in Barcelona after his return from international break: “I’m tired of always being the problem for everything at the club.”
