While he’ll hope that it’s a trophy laden one at the Nou Camp, he was busy being left embarrassed by his new teammates on Monday as he took part in his first full training session as a Barcelona player.

As seen in the video below, Griezmann was nutmegged not once but twice during group activities, and he couldn’t hide his embarrassment as he collapsed to the ground first time round before sharing a joke with his teammates after the second.

Given the level of quality and competition in the Barcelona squad, they will undoubtedly continue to push each other to improve on a daily basis, but based on the video evidence below, Griezmann will have to start working on his defensive qualities too as he certainly took it all in good spirits.
