Atletico Madrid coach, Diego Simeone says struggling star, Antoine Griezmann needs the support of the fans and the club to overcome his goal drought.
The France international pulled a blank in the Madrid derby and was jeered by Rojiblancos fans, as his goal drought extends.
Griezmann has only managed three goals in all competitions, with two in the league and Simeone believes he needs support.
“Antoine is worried and it’s normal because he wants to show us his best version and he need to score for that,” Simeone told reporters during his pre-match news conference.
“It’s also true that he did a great job in a lot of matches even if he didn’t score but he had a great relationship with goals in the last year, so now that he’s not scoring he’s suffering and so does the team.
“Also, the fans get angry because he has been our top scorer in the last season’s, the kid has everything, he’s an awesome player, from our side we know that we just need to support him. Giving him the opportunity to play and trusting him because he’s a player with the goal in the blood so he will naturally find his way back to it.”
