The 29-year-old however did not meet expectations, with only 15 goals scored in 46 appearances.
Questions have been asked about his working relationship with Lionel Messi and whether Barça will maintain it if he falls back on the market for another scary leader.
Deschamps, however, says the quality of Griezmann is “indisputable” and believes that an artist experienced at the highest level will arrive well in time.
He said RTL: “Her situation does not worry me.
“I have no doubts about his abilities. They are indisputable.
“All the players have a first year period at a new club where things may be a little more difficult. He has the mentality to take care of it. ”
Griezmann may not be seen again in the current campaign, with an untimely thigh injury having been picked up.
With Barça having only two La Liga games left, the Frenchman is unlikely to be on Quique Setien’s plans.
This should increase the pressure on the others, the Blaugrana refusing to throw in the towel on their title defense.
Real Madrid are one point ahead of the table with a game in hand, but a door remains open at Barça.
They must, however, pursue their ambitious goals without any loyal fan base to encourage them, with competitive action continuing behind closed doors.
With no football supporters around the world, Deschamps said, “It’s not really football.
“Normally, there are emotions, full stages, but today it is not possible. Even for players, they lack adrenaline. It is not a complete pleasure, it cannot be. ”
Barcelona, without Griezmann, will be back in action on Thursday against Osasuna at home.
