(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BARCELONA FORWARD, ANTOINE GRIEZMANN, ON HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH LIONEL MESSI, SAYING: "Well, in the end, he is not someone who speaks a lot in person, and me neither, so it is hard for us to talk to each other.
But I already brought him a few mates (Argentine tea) so we are in the right direction.
And also he has been injured many times so it's complicated on the pitch and during training to work on this connection, but I think we are two good guys and I am here to help any person on the team." 2.
