Griezmann dismisses transfer talk after 'dream' final

Griezmann dismisses transfer talk after 'dream' final

His future has been the subject of intense speculation of late, with many linking him to the vacant job at Arsenal and while now would be the flawless time to end his tenure with Atletico, it looks like Simeone is happy in the Spanish capital.

"When I left home at 14 years of age it was to win trophies, to enjoy nights like this", Griezmann said on BeIn Sports on the final whistle.

"I hope that he is happy to play for us".

"Antoine - if he stays we'll continue to grow and develop", the Argentinian said.

"We've reinvented ourselves in this competition, and against Arsenal (in the semi-finals) we showed what we're all about". They lifted their level in the second half and I regret that we were out of luck when Mitroglou hit the post.

As Atletico Madrid delivered yet another trademark performance, it was Marseille's inability to even put a dent on the course of the match which perhaps cast the best light on the monopoly Spanish clubs have heralded over European cup competitions in the recent seasons.

Atletico were the favourites against a Marseille side whose continental campaign had begun in the third qualifying round last July. [Marseille] are an offensive team, they work very well.

Griezmann dismisses transfer talk after 'dream' final

The French side had the first chance of the game inside the first five minutes when Payet slipped a ball into Valere Germain, who managed to side-foot his attempt across the bar from ten yards out.

Marseille were then punished for sloppy play as they fell behind in the 21st minute.

The miss stung soon after, when Steve Mandanda made a poor clearance. The Cameroonian's attempt at a touch was bad, and Gabi pounced on the loose ball, sending Griezmann through to finish.

For them, former West Ham midfielder and now Marseille skipper, Dimitri Payet, is a key man, while their fans will be hoping defender Adil Rami is not distracted by his new girlfriend, former Baywatch bombshell, Pamela Anderson.

Griezmann doubled Atletico's lead four minutes into the second half with a fine finish, before Gabi fired in a late third.

French striker Griezmann, who is likely to join Barcelona this summer, scored twice in Atletico's final win over Marseille in Lyon on Wednesday night.
