The current Barcelona's side is like a "cheat code in a video game", says new signing Antoine Griezmann.


The World Cup winner joined the LaLiga champions this month after his €120million release clause with Atletico Madrid was triggered. 


Barcelona, as always, have a rich attacking line-up with the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho all battling for a starting position, and Griezmann is delighted that he will be playing alongside top quality players at the Camp Nou.


"Barcelona are building a team like a cheat code in a video game," he told Marca. "We have a good team, great players and then it's the boss that has to decide who plays.


"We'll be ready to enjoy ourselves and make the fans and ourselves happy at all times."

Griezmann heaped praise on Messi and is looking forward to getting to know the Argentina superstar on and off the pitch.


"Yes, it will be amazing [to play alongside him]," he added. "I'm excited to see what he's like day to day, what he's like in training.


"I want to catch him doing things in training that I will try to repeat or do in my own way and get to know him on and off the pitch.


"I will be ready to do whatever it takes: for him, for the club and for the players."
