Koeman and Griezmann impressed with Umtiti Samuel dazzling performance vs Granada

Griezmann says that Umtiti wasn't prepared to start the match but did a great job nonetheless.

Koeman claims that the team improved defensively with the Frenchman on the pitch.

After Samuel Umtiti's impressive outing against Granada, both Antoine Griezmann and Ronald Koeman applauded the defender's display.

Griezmann: "Umtiti wasn't prepared to play, they told him to start right before the game, but he did well and had a great game."

Koeman: "This was Umtiti's first game in a long time. He played well, and the team has improved defensively."

Umtiti was meant to start the Granada match on the bench but the plans changed as Ronald Araujo picked up a muscle injury during the warm-up. As his stats prove, Samuel went on to have a great match despite it being his only fourth appearance of the season.
