Quique Setien praised Antoine Griezmann in Barcelona’s 2-0 La Liga prevail upon Leganes on Tuesday for making a “commendable occupation.”
A goal from Ansu Fati opened the scoring for Barca, with a decent appearance of the youthful Spanish star sparkling all through.
Somewhere else, Lionel Messi’s second-half penalty saw Barca seal the success as they regained their five-point advantage over the table.
Be that as it may, Griezmann again battled largely, proceeding with a series of performances of concern dating back to before the break caused by a coronavirus.
The forward had an attempt precluded for offside and in his first season since making the move from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona, he has only eight goals in 28 La Liga games.
Altogether, Griezmann has scored 14 goals through 38 matches, leaving him tied for second in goals at the club behind Messi with injury-plagued Luis Suarez.
It is a drop-off from Griezmann ‘s endeavors with Atleti, with the forward having gotten at least 20 goals with Diego Simeone ‘s side in each of his five seasons.
However, Setien praised France international for his endeavors, saying to Movistar: “Griezmann is a kid making a praiseworthy showing. He is an important player.”
On the arrival from the coronavirus-implemented break, Barcelona has yet to reach top structure yet has managed to vanquish the bottom side of La Liga.
Setien said he would anticipate a challenge if his side didn’t locate an early goal, with Fati’s opener coming three minutes before half-time.
“I realized the game would be hard. It will be troublesome except if you have the chance to get it directly at the start, which opens the game. It’s been so,” he said.
The bustling run of fixtures in Barcelona proceeds on Friday with an excursion to Seville which marks the club’s third game back from the break.
Following that, Messi, Griezmann, and co. will leap straight back into practice for a home match against Athletic Bilbao four days later.
