Griezmann Questions Captaincy To Mbappe Over Him — Reports

Antonie Griezmann

Antoine Griezmann, the 32-year-old Atletico Madrid striker, is reportedly questioning his future with the French national team after being passed over for the captaincy.

Manager Didier Deschamps chose Kylian Mbappe to be the new captain of Les Bleus after goalkeeper Hugo Lloris announced his retirement from international play.

The Atletico Madrid forward was made the second skipper. According to reports, Griezmann feels that he deserved the captaincy due to his experience and loyalty to the team.

The decision has reportedly upset Griezmann, who has become a leader on the French team and was a key player in their recent World Cup run.

While Griezmann remains close to many players on the French squad, missing out on the captaincy has created doubts in his head about his international future.

The upcoming Euro 2024 qualifying games against the Netherlands and the Republic of Ireland may play a crucial role in Griezmann's decision on whether or not to continue with Les Bleus.
