As per the league standings, Getafe are seventh with seven points from four outings. Jose Bordalas' men are in good nick though their record of 15 games without a win against Barca sums up the scale of the task at hand this weekend. We know that there is fatigue after the national teams, especially for the big teams that we have many internationals.
Koeman told reporters at a news conference to preview Saturday's meeting with Getafe that Griezmann must focus on producing his best display wherever he is used. "I understand that maybe there are positions he prefers, but we can't play with two players in the role of the 10". It always depends on the player.
"We want to pick our best team in every game so we can win and although people are exhausted after their worldwide games, everyone has returned feeling happy and motivated".
"Leo has spent many years playing in a tight schedule, and if he doesn't play then he feels even more exhausted", Koeman added.
"He is a player who if he does not play is more exhausted".
A few years ago, Luis Enrique came up with the idea of sitting Messi as a substitute against Real Sociedad and a crisis broke out. In fact, when I was the Dutch coach, in a game against France, he played on the right.
José Bordalás' Getafe went ahead in the 56th minute when Jaime Mata converted a penalty kick after Frenkie de Jong fouled Dakonam on the edge of the area while trying to clear a loose ball. "The coach is in charge and he has to give the maximum", he commented.
"He can play in three positions".
Griezmann, 29, has started all three of Barcelona's opening La Liga fixtures on the right side of a trio of attackers but was deployed in a central role by France manager Didier Deschamps during the global break, where he scored during Wednesday's 2-1 win against Croatia.
"Everyone has the right to say things but the coach decides".
"I spoke with Antoine [on Thursday] and I told him I'm looking out for the best for the team and I think he's best on the right for us", Koeman told ESPN.
Griezmann was Atletico Madrid's talisman for five years before joining Barca for 120 million euros in 2019 but has largely struggled to shine in the same team as Messi, scoring only nine league goals last season. We hope that we have succeeded by giving you the full details and information.
