The World Cup victor has started just one of Barca's past four LaLiga matches and only got off the bench for second-half stoppage time in the 2-2 draw with old club Atletico this week. When La Liga restarted in June, they held a two-point advantage.
Head coach of the Catalan "Barcelona" kike of Setian lost the confidence of the majority of players.
However, the former Las Palmas and Real Betis boss says he takes no notice of the rumours and is instead focused on Sunday's trip to in-form Villarreal. "Time might allow such things, you have to be calm", he added.
"It has not impeded me at all".
"But I made it clear to them that I saw myself in a project that started from zero and in which the decision-making was mine". I am not a coach that tries to impose himself.
Griezmann has now been a substitute in Barca's last two games and only came on in second half stoppage-time against former side Atletico. "I have exchanged a few words with him", he said.
Shock jock Christophe Dugarry, a former French global who played for massive clubs such as as Milan, Marseille, Barcelona and Birmingham City, has given his take on the Antoine Griezmann Situation at Barcelona. "He is an extraordinary, professional boy and it will not affect him when he has to play again because he is a very mentally strong boy and I am sure that we will have him at 100% when he has to go back to the field".
"I have the hierarchy and the importance of certain players in mind, but at a team like Barca, where there are so many great players, not everyone can play". There would be an "boom" and I believe that Juventus would quickly recover any investment thanks to the boost they would gain from visibility and marketing.
Messi leaving Barcelona remains unlikely despite the turmoil around the club at the moment but, if he were to decide on an exit, plenty of clubs would be interested.
