Why Antoine Always Wears Long-Sleeved Jersey?

Antoine always wears full sleeves jerseys and never leaves his forearms uncovered. 

From the club where he started playing to the national team and his current club, he is always in full sleeve jersey. 

He has his clothing style, and it makes him stand out from others.

It's not a coincidence that he always ends up wearing full sleeves; there is a reason behind it. 

The reason is that he is a massive fan of David Beckham. David is his biggest inspiration. 

He chose to wear full sleeves just because of him. Also, he chose the number seven because David also had the same number on his jersey. 

He is a fan of David's style and said he was always well dressed, whether off the pitch. 

David was so well groomed, so Antoine was impressed, and he tried to be like him. 

His style so influenced him that once, he had the same haircut as David. David has also appreciated his looks and style. 

On pitch only, he loves Beckham's clothing style, but outside pitch, he is a big NBA fan and loves streetwear. 

Is Griezmann Overrated Player?

Football fans criticized him after he said he was eating at the same table as Ronaldo and Messi. 

But Antoine is an underrated player rather than overrated. Antione was the star when France won the World Cup in 2018. 

Many players showed marvellous performances, but without Griezmann, France certainly wouldn’t have been able to win the World Cup. 

His excellent football IQ, composure, and defence led the team to victory. 

During the summer of 2018, he was captain of the France national team. He gave his teammates a lot of tactical advice off the field.  

He used to give a lot of recommendations to them in the locker room. 

Lucas Hernandez, the best left-back in the world cup, almost didn’t play for France's national team.

Spain had shown an interest in Lucas, so he was lost and didn’t know what to do. 

It was Antoine who convinced him to play for the French national team. Lucas is glad that Antione helped him to find himself. 

Antoine, who has a great sense of tactical ideas and is a great leader and teammate, is probably more underrated than overrated.
