Griezmann declines to talk about his future at Atletico

2 days ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

LYON, France - Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone spoke with an air of resignation when asked if the club can stop Antoine Griezmann from leaving. The France striker's stock rose higher when he scored two expert goals on Wednesday night to help the Spanish club win the Europa League with a 3-0 win against Marseille. "If he stays with us, we'll continue to grow and develop. He's a lad who has given so much," Simeone said. "We've always competed at the highest level.

Diego Simeone has rejected talk of the Europa League final being an opportunity for Atletico Madrid to banish the ghosts of Champions League heartache suffered at the hands of Real Madrid. Atletico take on Marseille in Wednesday's decider in Lyon, returning to the last stage of a competition they won under Simeone in 2012, having become more accustomed to the Champions League in recent years. The Rojiblancos were beaten in the final of that tournament by arch rivals Madrid in 2014 and 2016, but Simeone gave little thought to suggestions a Europa League triumph could heal those wounds.

3 days ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

At the final whistle of Atletico Madrid's 3-0 win over Marseille in Wednesday's Europa League final, Diego Simeone came down from the stands-to which he had been banished after being sent from the touchline at Arsenal in the semifinal-and walked across the field.
