Griezmann ‘wants to stay at Atletico’

Antoine Griezmann isn’t looking to leave Atletico Madrid any time soon. ‘I want to stay and I don’t think they want to sell me…’

Griezmann was speaking at a sponsors’ event and was asked about his future and where he prefers to be fielded by Diego Simeone.

“I’m happy here, comfortable. I want to stay. I don’t think the club wants to sell me, so…,” he said, AS reports.

“I’m asked [where I prefer to play] for France and the answer is always the same. I’m comfortable on the pitch, anywhere, I don’t care about my position. But as a forward there are more chances.”

Griezmann has scored the goals that were expected from Jackson Martinez, but the Colombia striker, a summer signing from Porto, has already been offloaded to Guangzhou Evergrande.

“Jackson was a great player, actually, he still is,” Griezmann said of his former teammate.

“He struggled to adapt, like I did last year. There was an offer and it was for the best for everyone. He came to say goodbye and got a big hug.”
