It’s doesn’t matter how we play,” Griezmann responded.  CHOLO“For me, Cholo [Diego Simeone] has made me better, he’s made me more of a goal scorer. Before, I didn’t score so many goals.

But at the same time I’m not going to put too much pressure on myself, we’ll enjoy it and try to win, like we always do,” he commented.  “When they told me that Atletico wanted to sign me, I had no doubts because of the team that they had and the manager… Like I say, every day I learn from him, from my team-mates, and I knew I would improve personally and help the team [at Atletico].  With respect to his team-mates’ desire for revenge, Griezmann says there’s no need for it when they face Madrid in the final after losing to them at the final hurdle in Lisbon two years ago. “It’s another chance to play in a final, so everyone is happy. But now we have La Liga, it will be important for us to give everything. After that we will think about the final,” he finished.last_img read more

Valencia looking for Andre Gomes replacement
