Griezmann named Player of the Month

Antoine Griezmann’s superb form in April has seen the Atletico Madrid striker named the BBVA La Liga Player of the Month.

The Frenchman notched eight goals in six La Liga games to help Atleti consolidate third place in the table, while he scored twice in fixtures against Malaga, Deportivo la Coruna and Elche.

It is the second time the 24-year-old has won the award this season, having also picked up the accolade in January after scoring five times that month.

Griezmann, who has found the net on 22 occasions this season, has already beaten by six goals his previous highest total, achieved when he was with Real Sociedad.
