Diego Simeone's Clean Sheet Record At Atletico Madrid Is Insane

Diego Simeone's Clean Sheet Record At Atletico Madrid Is Insane

Fresh after scoring a brace in Atletico Madrid's 3-0 win over Marseille in the UEFA Europa League final, forward Antoine Griezmann did not want to touch too much on the rumours linking him with Spanish giants FC Barcelona.

Antoine Griezmann was "determined" to land his first major trophy with Atletico Madrid after his double led them to Europa League glory against Marseille.

Liverpool supporters are ordering their players to avoid touching the Champions League trophy before their final against Real Madrid.

"Congratulations to Atleti for their Europa League title won tonight in Lyon", tweeted The Whites on Wednesday night after the final whistle.

Griezmann scored a second goal in the 49th minute before Gabi finished the game with Atlético's third goal in the 89th minute.

The France worldwide, who scored twice against the Ligue 1 side in the Europa League final, has been linked with a move from the Los Rojiblancos. "I owe a lot to Simeone and my team mates".

"You can't fall behind against a team like Atletico", Marseille coach Rudi Garcia said.

Marseille had been desperate to win the second European trophy in their history, on French soil, 25 years after beating AC Milan in the inaugural Champions League final in Munich. "There has been joy and sadness, but I am so happy".

He celebrated both goals with an energetic celebratory dance from popular video game Fortnite.

Marseille skipper Dimitri Payet is comforted by Lucas Ocampos as he comes off injured in the first half. It also lost another Champions League final to Real Madrid in 2014 and the gulf in experience was evident.

There had been plenty of talk about Griezmann's future in the build-up to the game, with Atletico president Enrique Cerezo making this confident prediction about the Frenchman's future.
