Atleti unhappy with Griezmann comments

Antoine Griezmann’s Atletico Madrid’s teammates are said to be unhappy with the Frenchman’s comments that the Rojiblancos will be fighting relegation if their form does not improve.

Diego Simeone’s side have endured a difficult start to the season, drawing with newly promoted clubs Alaves and Leganes.

The stalemate against the latter on Saturday evening prompted Griezmann to issue a wake-up call to his team, but according to several Spanish media sources the comments have not gone down well in the Vicente Calderon dressing room.

Mundo Deportivo state that the 25-year-old’s teammates view the reference to a relegation battle as too harsh and that it will only increase the media spotlight on the team’s slow start.
