Griezmann has one final job at Atleti after landing Europa League

Grant SmithMay 17, 2018

"Belonging to this group is above winning a title".

Griezmann has been continually linked with a move to Barcelona, who are eager to get rid of Ousmane Dembele after a dismal debut campaign at the Nou Camp.

That position is now occupied by Lyon, but Marseille are just a point behind them and Monaco could yet drop from second spot, with the final round of matches in France to be played this weekend.

"If we had played with everyone at 100 percent, we could have been to the maximum and played with you before this monster".

The 27-year-old has been the subject of intense transfer speculation all season, with Barcelona expected to make a huge bid for the striker this summer.

Griezmann enjoyed another excellent season at Atletico Madrid and he inspired them to a 3-0 win in the Europa League final last night over Marseille with two goals.

"He has played three finals with us, has won two, and so that shows that he is not far away from his objective of regularly playing finals". I tip my hat off to Marseille, they have a lot to be proud of.

"Simeone has taught me a lot, he made me become a better player and I hope I can keep improving every year, in every game".

Asked about Griezmann's future, Atletico head coach Diego Simeone said: "It's a decision that he will have to come to. I am forever grateful". Now we are in the UEFA Super Cup, so he could play four finals with us.

"I hope he is happy with us".

It was a one-sided final, with the French side unable to match the crisp, confident passing of their Spanish opponents, one of the most consistent clubs in European competition in recent years.

"It was a dream of mine to win this trophy with my teammates and with Simeone", the France forward said. The team began the game with some difficulties, but as time went on, and with the goal, we got comfortable. "Even without him, we'll continue to grow".

Their win comes after defeats to Real Madrid in the Champions League finals of 2014 and 2016.

Victory for Atletico, who have already qualified for the Champions League, means the automatic group-stage berth will go to third place in France, a spot in which Marseille could still finish.
