first_img 3 3 Pique was hoping Griezmann would join him at the Nou Camp Griezmann in the SPanish TV special 3 Pique has upset Barcelona supporters center_img “When I knew things, I told people at the club. There have not been two versions of the end (of the video) recorded.“I don’t know who said that. It’s a new concept and the novelties are always being debated.“It’s good that people feel close to the player. Finally, he does not come but other players will come… I did not betray Barca.” Barcelona admitted they are annoyed by Gerard Pique’s involvement in Antoine Griezmann’s Nou Camp snub video.One of Pique’s companies produced the bizarre documentary which was aired on Spainish television and titled ‘The Decision’. Griezmann ended speculation of a move to the Catalans by pledging his future to Atletico Madrid and the end of the 50-minute long programme.Barcelona’s vice-president Jordi Mestre said on Tuesday: “We respect Griezmann’s decision to renew with Atletico Madrid as we respect the decision of any player.“I feel bad and we regret that our members have been disappointed by the staging of the decision.“Pique’s participation has generated surprise and bad feeling at the club and among Barcelona supporters.“We will speak internally with him and with [Barcelona and France team-mate Samuel] Umtiti and we will not make any public statement.” Barca fans have been angered by Pique’s participation in the video and the Spanish international was forced to defend himself.Pique said: “I’m surprised by the reaction of the people of Barcelona, who doubt my commitment and love I have for this club.“It is very surprising. It’s one of my companies (which produced the video) but the idea is several weeks old.“I spoke with Griezmann. He told me there was a possibility he would go to Barcelona. I told him we were going to film, that it would be very good content for people to see from the inside how such a decision is made.“From there I obviously moved away. Yesterday morning I was called to tell me that the show would be broadcast in the evening. Finally, he said he was staying. It’s like that: he stays.“I don’t give any advice. I only put cameras there so that we knew what was happening.last_img read more
