Atletico Madrid’s French striker ANTOINE GRIEZMANN has told fans to “calm down” after he dressed up as a black basketball player.
“I’m a fan of the Harlem Globetrotters and the good times… it’s a tribute,” he insisted.
Griezmann’s post led to an outcry on social media with one user blasting: ‘You’re gona get so much backlash.. (sic)’
The Frenchman has been linked to possible moves to Manchester United or Barcelona in the new year.
But one Barcelona fan wrote: “Don’t come near my club pls and thank you.”
Griezmann, 26, quickly deleted the original tweet.
