Antoine Griezmann says Barcelona will have to work really hard to improve their all-round performance following their 1-0 loss to Athletic Bilbao.


The Frenchman's Barca debut was ruined by Aritz Aduriz whose acrobatic strike in the 89th minute downed Ernesto Valverde's side on the opening day of the 2019-20 LaLiga Santander season.


"We have to work because that's the only way we'll improve."

The Frenchman started on the left wing but moved into the centre-forward position after Uruguay striker Luis Suarez was substituted because of an injury in the first-half .


"We have time," Griezmann said after the defeat as Marca quoted. "The season is long and we have to work towards the next game.


"We have to work because that's the only way we'll improve."


Griezmann added. "We lacked what costs the most in football. That last pass, that cross or that overlap."


On Suarez's injury, the former Atletico Madrid star said: "Let's just see how he is and if he can play against [Real] Betis."
