Simeone: Griezmann attitude perfect

Atletico Madrid Coach Diego Simeone has ‘no complaints’ about the attitude or application of forward Antoine Griezmann.

The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Barcelona – while the Catalan club have released a statement to deny a deal has been struck – but the Atleti boss has defended his performances.

The 26-year-old struck the only goal for Los Rojiblancos, before being substituted, in Saturday’s frustrating 1-1 draw at home to Girona.

“It was a very good game for him (on Saturday),” Simeone told reporters, as cited by Marca.

“He was involved in very good attacking moves and combinations, he had a good understand with Costa and Correa, plus he scored the goal.

“It is difficult to understand things sometimes that you cannot see and I am not inside his head, but he always does his best for us and is a constant threat, so I can have no complaints.”
