Griezmann Won’t Leave If Simeone Does, Despite Staying For Him

share on:

Antoine Griezmann has stated he has no reason to leave Atletico Madrid and believes he can improve at the club.

The Frenchman’s exploit last season, saw him claim 22 goals in 38 matches and he scored 13 goals as rojiblancos made it to the UCL final.

He was linked with a move to PSG and Manchester United and was close to leaving, due to rumours linking Diego Simeone with an exit.

However, the head coach quickly assured Griezmann he would stay put, convincing the 25-year-old to remain at Atletico as well.

“I had some doubts [about my future at Atletico Madrid] last summer when there were reports Simeone could leave,” Griezmann told GQ.

A move to Ligue 1 is not my goal at this stage,” he stressed.

“Maybe later. But I love Spain.”
