What do footballers do when they’re not training or playing matches?
Watch football and play football games, probably.
That’s certainly the case as far as Antoine Griezmann is concerned.
To relax, Griezmann loves a bit of Football Manager it seems.
Back in April, the Barcelona star tweeted his Arsenal XI on Football Manager 19 which featured the likes of Jordan Pickford, Matthijs De Ligt and Joao Felix.

It wasn’t quite clear what year the game was in but it was clear Griemzann has played a few seasons to have acquired such an impressive side.
And on Wednesday night, Griezmann tweeted another image of his Arsenal side - this time in the year 2023 - and it’s pretty ridiculous.
We think the goalkeeper, Hasan, is a regen.
But Griezmann’s back-four are all real, with Alexis Saelemaekers at right-back, Andy Robertson at left-back and a very impressive centre-back pairing of Matthijs de Ligt and Rapahane Varane.
Then there’s Bruno Fernandes and Frankie de Jong in central midfield with Francisco Trincão, Joao Felix and Jadon Sancho in front of them.
Dutchman Brian Brobbey - who is 17-years-old in real life - is the striker.
That’s some side.
The likes of Phli Foden, Ruben Neves, Alex Telles and Brahim Díaz are on the bench.
Yeah, he’s probably going to win the league with that squad.
From what we can see, there's not a single Arsenal player from the 2018/19 squad that is still at the club come 2023.
And it's something that Alexandre Lacazette also noticed. He tweeted Griezmann asking where he was, to which the former Atletico Madrid man explained that he had just been sold to Huddersfield for £23.5m.
