BARCELONA legend Hristo Stoichkov has slammed Antoine Griezmann after the club's Champions League humiliation.
Ronald Koeman's side crashed out of the round of 16 after a 5-2 aggregate defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.
Griezmann, 29, played in both legs but struggled yet again to stamp his authority on the contest.
The Frenchman joined Barca for £108million in 2019 from Atletico Madrid but has failed to live up to his price-tag.
He has just six league goals to his name this season and Stoichkov believes Barca must cut their losses and flog him in a damning assessment of the forward.
Speaking to Sportsport.ba, the 55-year-old said: "Whenever Griezmann is on the pitch, Barcelona plays with ten players .
"If they want to do something in the long term, they have to sell him.
"Trincao and Braithwaite must be in the team. What is Griezmann doing there?"
Stoichkov, a former Bulgarian international, spent seven years at the Nou Camp over two spells.
The forward won LaLiga five times and the Champions League once.

Griezmann's attitude has also come under question off the pitch.
He was heavily criticised after Barca's first-leg 4-1 defeat to PSG after taking a flight immediately to France.
Reports claimed he skipped Koeman's debriefing and instead headed straight for the airport 'leaving his team-mates at the Nou Camp' dwelling on their heavy defeat.
