Antoine Griezmann : Barcelona new signing Griezmann got two nutmegs in his first training session at his new club with new teammates.
Barcelona have recently signed the sensational forward Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, after triggering his colossal release clause last week.
The French International attended his first ever training session at his new club today, ahead of Barcelona’s pre-season tour, which will start next week.
Recent footages are showing that the new Barcelona signing had a rough first day at work, as he got two nutmegs while playing Rondo, with rest of his teammates.
The video shows that the 28-year-old player felt slightly embarrassed after the first nutmeg, and the second nutmeg by Ivan Rakitic caused him to playfully push the Croatian away.

The World Cup winning player surely did not expect such a day at Barcelona before arrival, but the highly skillful Catalan squad definitely showed, what it takes to be a Barcelona player.
Griezmann is certainly looking forward towards a bright career in Barcelona, as his quality will probably end few issues at the Blaugrana club.
The French International was linked with Barcelona ever since he made his departure announcement to Atletico Madrid fans, although, the transfer saga was and still is full of controversies.
However, somehow, the Catalan giants were able to add his services, and the star signing of Barcelona this summer was welcomed by his teammates today.
Furthermore, alongside Griezmann, Frankie De Jong and Neto also had their first training sessions with Barcelona today, and the contingent welcomed them with a tradition.
Here is the welcome
With quality additions in the squad, Barcelona looks like a formidable side ahead of the next season.
