Didier Deschamps who is the handler of the French national football senior team has explained that Barcelona striker Antoine Griezmann is currently not in good mood at the Nou Camp.

This is as a result of the new Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman using the Frenchman to play from the wings this term in the Spanish La Liga.

During Barcelona's Spanish La Liga draw with Sevilla on Sunday, October 4, Antoine Griezmann was used on the right hand side of the attack with Philippe Coutinho and Fati used behind Messi.

According to the report on Daily Mail, Deschamps who won the World Cup with Griezmann explained that Koeman is not using the player in his best position.

The 51-year-old explained below according to the report on Daily Mail.

''Antoine is playing on the right there at the moment. It's true that Koeman said, and told him, that he did not understand that he was used to playing in a more central position. But Antoine must also adapt today.
''For me, he is still more effective when he is in the heart of the game, when he is able to touch the ball a lot. In that position, he has the possibility to come and help in the midfield too,''.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are currently occupying fifth position on the Spanish La Liga table with seven points after three games.
