Atlético: Antoine Griezmann’s humble reaction after his record


By: Manu Tournoux

A day to mark with a white stone in Madrid. Despite the draw conceded by his team against Getafe (3-3) on the 18th day of La Liga, Antoine Griezmann became co-top scorer in Atlético history. Author of a double the day before, the French playing master now has 173 pawns to his credit, thus equaling the record previously held by another Madrid legend, Luis Aragonés. A great proof of redemption for the Habs who saw their popularity drastically reduced during their transfer to FC Barcelona in the summer of 2019. Returning to the Spanish capital two years later, the native of Mâcon gradually recovered his status darling of the Civitas Metropolitano.

A professional at heart, Antoine Griezmann is certainly satisfied with this record, but he would have preferred to celebrate it with a victory as he indicated at the end of the meeting before showing humility. “It’s a special evening. On a personal level, a lot of emotions, joy and pride. But it’s a shame we couldn’t get the victory. But personally, I am happy to have contributed to the team and to have matched Luis Aragonés… Atléti is his phrases, his philosophy, his work, everything… It is a joy to join him, but he I still have a lot to do. I will never reach his level, because I don’t think I will become a legend like him.”he indicated to the press, comments reported by Ace.
