Barcelona's ultimatum to Atletico star Antoine Griezmann

  • Griezmann and Pogba

Tolisso told reporters his fellow midfielder "had a good game" and urged supporters to stick with the team, whose win was secured by goals from Samuel Umtiti, Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele.

Paul Pogba though was jeered by a section of home fans in the second half after a misplaced pass, and again when he was replaced by Steven N'Zonzi with five minutes remaining.

However despite the seemingly comfortable scoreline, the French supporters weren't exactly happy with the performance of Les Bleus.

Jose Mourinho has pitched his plans for Manchester United to Paul Pogba for next season amidst interest from his former club Juventus, according to reports.

The winger stressed that the French people should feel lucky that they have a player of the midfielder's calibre playing for their national team.


It's hard to know exactly how to view the career of Paul Pogba so far.

"The whistles are part of football, you have to stay tough mentally", stated Atletico Madrid striker Griezmann.

Griezmann came close to leaving Atletico last summer, with Manchester United thought to be interested, but performed a U-turn after the club were hit with a transfer ban of their own.

The Frenchman has enjoyed a mixed campaign, suffering injury spells and demotions to the bench alongside producing spellbinding displays in big games against Man City, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. "It hurts because I wouldn't want to be whistled, even if I went to Saint-Etienne, as an ex-Lyon player", Tolisso said. The players do the right thing.

France have one more friendly against the U.S. before they travel to the World Cup in Russian Federation, where they are expected to top their group which features Australia, Peru and Denmark.
