Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann has shown off his Football Manager save on social media and it is bad news for Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette, who learned that his international teammate sold him to Huddersfield Town in 2023.
Griezmann posted a picture of his Arsenal save on the popular game on Wednesday, showing off a star-studded team which included the likes of João Félix, Jadon Sancho and Matthijs de Ligt.
Je suis ou ?! 🤨— Alexandre Lacazette (@LacazetteAlex) August 14, 2019
And in a completely unintentionally savage way, the Barcelona star revealed that he'd sold Lacazette to Huddersfield Town at the start of that season, just years after winning the Premier League, Carabao Cup and Champions League.
Later in the conversation, Griezmann added that he was desperate for money so cashed in on Lacazette for a cool £23.5m, but to make up for it he promised to build the Arsenal forward a statue just outside Emirates Stadium.
It was unintentionally comedy gold from Griezmann, although him sharing his Football Manager save unsurprisingly came with a host of fans pointlessly calling for the France international to join London.

Antoine, enough of teasing. Come and join us soon.— Unai Emery (@UnaiEmiratez) August 14, 2019
So what you’re trying to say is that this is a secret message and you’re joining Arsenal in 2023? 😂— LacaZte. (@LacaZte) August 14, 2019
Unfortunately Griezmann won't be going anywhere in the near future as he's only just joined Barcelona from Atlético Madrid, while fans in north London also won't be treated to anything close to the team that the Frenchman has assembled in 2023.
With the 2019/20 season now underway, Arsenal will host their first game of the new campaign this weekend when they welcome Burnley to Emirates Stadium.
