Griezmann played 201 times for Sociedad, scoring 52 goals before moving on to Atletico Madrid and then Barcelona. However, the 29-year-old has struggled to justify his controversy-laden €120 million summer move to Camp Nou, with just eight goals in LaLiga in his debut campaign.
“When he left Atletico Madrid, I was sad to see the controversy that there was. It really affected me,” Olhats told Mundo Deportivo.

“I can understand why he would want to sign for Barcelona. Barca is Barca. Other players and friends said that his game was going to fit in and adapt very well to the way Barca play, tiki-taka and all that, but I don’t like his performances.
“You see that there are problems, that he isn’t enjoying it.
Back in February, Griezmann said he believed things would work out if given time, and that he was still developing an on-field relationship with Lionel Messi.
"I've been here six months; we still have to learn,” Griezmann said.
“I have to learn [Messi's] movements and he has to learn mine. We're enjoying the work we put in together and it's getting better and better all the time. I'm very happy and really enjoying myself here.”
