Griezmann’s happiness


By: Manu Tournoux

Antoine Griezmann did not shy away from his pleasure after Atletico Madrid qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

On the flank since the first leg due to an ankle injury, Antoine Griezmann made a most convincing return on Wednesday during the return match against Inter Milan in the round of 16 of the Champions League.

Although he missed a big opportunity to double the lead in the second half, the Frenchman reassured his team in the first half by equalizing just three minutes after the Milanese opened the scoring. Replaced in extra time, the former Barcelona player was able to savor this beautiful evening experienced by the Colchoneros.

“In the league, we weren’t very good. In the Cup, we left a bad impression. There, at home, it was different. Our defenders were exceptional. It’s not their habit to press, to go one on one, but they did it today. We were a great team, he stressed at the microphone of Canal+. We had to play a match like that, be physically strong, respond and win duels, which we hadn’t done in the last league matches. We got into Champions League mode. We must continue at this pace.”
