Antoine Griezmann’s Arsenal squad on Football Manager 2019 is unreal – meet the wonderkids starring for the Gunners in 2023


Antoine Griezmann may well have completed his move to FC Barcelona this summer, but the World Cup winner clearly has a soft spot for Arsenal.

The 28-year-old posted a screenshot of his Football Manager game onto Twitter and revealed he is currently undertaking a save as the Gunners’ gaffer.

Time had elapsed in the game until 2023 and it is fair to say the former Atletico Madrid striker has assembled a world class squad.

Packed with a host of stars, there is not a single current squad member in the team, much to the chagrin of Alexandre Lacazette.

Replying to his France international colleague in the replies, Griezmann revealed that after winning the Premier League, Champions League and Carabao Cup in 2021, he sold the striker to Huddersfield for £23.5million!

Unai Emery may have splashed the cash on the likes of Kieran Tierney and Nicolas Pepe this summer, but the Spaniard will be envious of the side Griezmann has built at the Emirates.

Bristling with young talent, the France international has built a very good Gunners team

Below, talkSPORT.com has provided mini profiles on each real member of the team. ALl of the stats are from the game and are not the latest
