Author of a saving double on the lawn of Real Betis (1-2), Antoine Griezmann made a very good start to the season on the side of Atlético de Madrid, far from his performances last season. Involved in 8 of his team’s 20 goals, the French striker is one of the centerpieces of the Colchoneros’ current good form. A form found and motivated by his trainer, Diego Simeone.
“I am very happy for him. He did a great job to stay at Atlético de Madrid, because he wants to be at Atlético. When someone is where they want to be, it’s unique. Looks like we’re finding the Griezmann who was gone. The one before, the one six months before his departure. We see the Griezmann we had. A leader on the field, who finds his place, who understands his teammates and whom his teammates understand. It makes him feel good.”, thus rejoiced the Cholo. This bodes well for the France team, a few weeks before the start of the World Cup (November 20 – December 18).
