Griezmann caught partying

Antoine Griezmann is facing disciplinary action from the French Football Federation for being caught partying between Under-21 matches this week.

The Real Sociedad attacker and four other members of the junior side have been found to have been out at a nightclub in Paris on Saturday, the night after their side’s Under-21 play-off first-leg win over Norway.

Griezmann and his teammates then returned to the training camp before being included in preparations for the second leg, which was played this Tuesday.

Griezmann came off the bench to score for Les Espoirs in that reverse tie in Norway, but could not prevent the 5-3 defeat on the night that saw the French unable to qualify for next summer’s European Championship in Israel.

Erick Mombaerts has left his position today as the Under-21s’ Coach, with it speculated that his decision not to punish Griezmann and company for their foray to the French capital over the weekend thought to be a contributing factor as to why.

Subsequently, speculation is that Griezmann is now facing a possible disciplinary procedure from the FFF.
