Atletico ride on Griezmann brace to win Europa League

Atletico ride on Griezmann brace to win Europa League

"If he stays, we'll keep growing because we are destined to keep growing".

Following Wednesday's 3-0 win over Marseille in the Europa League final, Oblak admitted that he was now focused on this weekend's La Liga clash with Eibar rather than his own future.

The French global has finally managed to break the second place curse, beating Marseille 3-0 in the final to lift the UEFA Europa League trophy. He is now tied with Luis Aragones for the most titles with the club.

Griezmann returned to France to play the final against his boyhood club and did so with a bang, scoring either side of half time to put the game beyond the reach of Marseille. "He's a lad who has given so much", Simeone said. Just being in this final was an achievement for Garcia's team, but they will look back on the evening with regrets. "It shows they are keen on putting Nigeria on the global football map, and they are also providing an opportunity for our players to be noticed by big European clubs". A goal then would have got us back into the match.

Antoine Griezmann, a talismanic figure at Atletico Madrid, will not enjoy the same status at Barcelona if he joins the Liga champions in the close-season, Atletico chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin has said.

Some had claimed that Griezmann had a point to prove having been linked with a move away as transfer speculation has mounted in the lead up to this final.

Griezmann, who has been with Atletico since 2014, is on a contract that runs to 2022. Atletico finished third behind either Barcelona or Madrid in all the other years since 2012-13, which was the team's first full season under Simeone. In 2010, they defeated Fulham 2-1 in the UEFA Cup and two years later they triumphed 3-0 over rivals Athletic Bilbao.

Torres, 34, will play his last game for Atletico on Sunday at home to Eibar. The former Spain striker earlier announced he will leave the club at the end of the season.
