By scoring the 3rd goal for the Colchoneros, the world champion reached the bar of 150 goals in the Atlético jersey, a tunic he wore between 2014 and 2019 and since 2021, on his return to the club.


I like the person, I have a high regard for the player that is Griezmann.

Antoine is having a wonderful season.

He had a hard time reconnecting with the Antoine we know and love, but with work, dedication and patience, he succeeded, ” 

said Simeone at a press conference after the match.

Since I've been back, it's been my best game.

I am very well, very happy.
