Antoine Griezmann reveals his Arsenal side on Football Manager – and trolls Alexandre Lacazette
Antoine Griezmann has shared an image of his all-conquering Arsenal team on Football Manager – but his France team-mate Alexandre Lacazette isn’t impressed.
The Barcelona (opens in new tab) star posted a screenshot of his Gunners side from the year 2023 on Twitter, featuring the likes of Joao Felix, Raphael Varane, Andy Robertson, Frenkie de Jong, Matthijs de Ligt and Jadon Sancho.
However, current Arsenal (opens in new tab) front man Lacazette was quick to quiz his compatriot on why he wasn’t among the starting XI or substitutes.
“Where am I?” he wrote in response to the tweet.

Griezmann responded with a list of the striker’s honours in the game for his side, including the Premier League and Champions League, before admitting he’d accepted a £23.5 million bid from Huddersfield (opens in new tab) in 2023.
