Antoine Griezmann admits he always knew that it was “going to be hard” for him to make an immediate impact at Barcelona.
The France international forward sealed a big-money move to Camp Nou from Atletico Madrid over the summer.
Such a switch had been mooted for some time, with the World Cup winner having previously passed up the opportunity to swap life in the Spanish capital for that in Catalunya.
Barca eventually got their man, but are still waiting on him to find a spark.
Quizzed on his efforts to date after figuring down the middle for France in their 2-1 Euro 2020 qualification win over Moldova, Griezmann told RMC Sport: “It is certain that playing in the centre is better for me. I have my bearings. I’ve been managing this position for years and years.
“I have a new club. I have to adapt. I am still learning. I knew on arrival that it was going to be hard, I knew it very well.”
