Simeone urges Griezmann to stay


Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann carried his team to victory against French heavyweights Marseille in UEFA Europa League final late Wednesday, scoring two goals in each half.

Captain Gabi's late strike rubber-stamped Atletico's third Europa League triumph since 2010 and gave Griezmann his first major trophy with the team.

"Our aim is to build over the long term and to make OM a team capable of competing for titles every year in France and in Europe", McCourt said.

"I chose to start Dimitri, one of our best players", he told reporters after the game.

"If we had played with everyone at 100 percent, we could have been to the maximum and played with you before this monster".

Coach Diego Simeone watched on from the stands having been hit with a four-game ban for being sent off during the semi-final first-leg at Arsenal but still saw his side ease to victory.

It was a one-sided final, with the French side unable to match the crisp, confident passing of their Spanish opponents, one of the most consistent clubs in European competition in recent years.

Griezmann, who scored in every knockout round for Madrid after they dropped down from the Champions League, proved to be the difference with two smart finishes more than enough to seal the trophy.

"It's a decision that he will have to come to", he added.

"I hope he is happy with us".

Griezmann's decisive contribution helped erase bitter memories of 2016, when he missed a second-half penalty in Atletico's Champions League final loss to Real Madrid. "The truth is this was a dream for me, to win a trophy with Atletico, with [Diego Simeone] and my friends and teammates", he is quoted as saying by ESPN.
