Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann has made clear that he is determined to be a success at the Camp Nou.

The Frenchman has received a fair amount of criticism in his debut season at the club, but he remains ambitious.

“I want to be an important part of the team, on and off the pitch, enjoy football and help my teammates win every game,” Griezmann told Barcelona’s official club media.

LaLiga Santander is set to get back underway this week, with Barcelona set to travel to Real Mallorca on June 13, and the 29-year-old believes the break was beneficial for him.

“I think on a personal level it has been good for me,” Griezmann explained.

“I have been able to rest; I think it has been five years since I have had a rest like that, so mentally and physically it has been good.

“I was able to enjoy time with my family, my kids and now I am ready to go.”

Barcelona will be able to call upon Luis Suarez as the coronavirus-enforced stoppage of football has allowed the Uruguayan to heal from knee surgery, which Griezmann is glad about.

“Luis is our No.9, a goalscorer, the one who makes the difference in big games along with [Lionel Messi],” he said.

“We missed him in the last few games [before the break].

“We are really happy to have a player like him back and he will help us from the off.”

Barcelona currently have a two-point lead over Real Madrid at the top of the table and Griezmann believes that the Catalans will have to try and take maximum points from the remaining 11 matches.

“We have all the cards; we have 11 games left and if we win them all we will be champions,” he noted.

“I think we are ready for it, to win and enjoy the football.”
