ANTOINE GRIEZMANN and Lionel Messi appear to have put any rift behind them after their passionate celebration of the Frenchman’s goal against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Rumours of aggro between the pair surfaced after Messi reportedly warned Barca chiefs against signing the former Atletico Madrid man in the summer.

But the Catalans went ahead with the signing and fans have been watching the pair closely ever since.

Supporters online claimed Messi was deliberately not passing to the 28-year-old who has struggled to hit his best form since making the switch to the Nou Camp.

But when asked about a potential fall-out, Griezmann blamed shyness.

He told “I’m really shy and I’m not very good at talking to people”

“I’m not the type of person to start conversations.

“But Leo, Luis and I are getting to know each other and we’ve already gone for dinner together.
