Crafty Journalist Circumvents French Press Officer Demand For Griezmann Question

Crafty Journalist Circumvents French Press Officer Demand For Griezmann Question

Such was the volume of questions regarding the future of Antoine Griezmann's club career at a press conference on Tuesday, the French press officer put in place a stipulation which he felt would stop that line of questioning.

The Atletico Madrid striker has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona this summer. Yesterday, the 27-year-old said that he has already made up his mind regarding next season but refused to elaborate further on that statement.

"Today is not the day to talk about my future," said Griezmann.

"Yes, I have already made a decision about my future. But I'm not going to speak about it today. It's not the time or the place."

Given that the majority of inquiries about where Griezmann will play his football next season were coming from Spanish journalists, the French press officer decided that further questions would only be accepted in French.

It was at that point where one journalist got inventive. With the help of Google translate - much to the annoyance of the French press officer and the amusement of Griezmann - his question was asked.
