Angry Barcelona fans have attacked France international Antoine Griezmann while coming out of training and told the World Cup winner to show respect to Lionel Messi.

There have been reports of Antoine Griezmann not having superb relationship with the Argentine legend at Barcelona since the start of the ongoing season in the Spanish La Liga.

Griezmann's uncle Emmanuel Lopez recently made a comment claiming that Lionel Messi is not working hard enough in training which is affecting other players according to the report on Givemesport.

“Griezmann was convinced that he wasn’t going to be successful within the first six months, but what I didn’t expect was that it would last an entire year. Besides, with Messi, I know what’s going on inside the club – it’s not easy.''

Some Barcelona fans were not pleased with this statement and they stormed the Nou Camp to express their annoyance to Antoine Griezmann.

They were spotted shouting and telling Antoine Griezmann to respect their captain Lionel Messi if he wants to remain at the Spanish giants.

Antoine Griezmann joined Barcelona last season from Atletico Madrid, and the Frenchman has so far played 42 games netting 11 goals for the Catalans.

Earlier, had reported how Antoine Griezmann was urged to dump Spanish club Barcelona as France legend Bixente Lizarazu tells the player to leave now before it is too late.

The forward has not been impressive under manager Ronald Koeman and was brought on for just nine minutes in the El Clasico when Barcelona lost 3-1 at home to Real Madrid.

Griezmann is currently struggling at the club and is yet to score or assist a goal for the Catalans this season.

His compatriot Lizarazu has urged the player to consider ending his reign at the club before it is too late.

"Griezmann is great. He's a very, very good player and he's fantastic for France. But he isn't at all for Barcelona. This is a real problem.
"He went to Barcelona with a dream of playing with Lionel Messi, but unfortunately there is no technical relationship between the two.''
