Antoine Griezmann: ‘Qualification was Atletico Madrid’s objective’

Antoine Greizmann focused on Atletico Madrid securing their ‘objective of qualification’ following Wednesday’s 2-0 win over Monaco.

Last season saw Diego Simeone’s side drop into the Europa League after a third-placed finish but Los Rojiblancos made no mistake this time around.

“We need to focus on the good first half we had, but we relaxed after the break and that is when other teams can do damage,” Griezmann warned in a post-match interview with Spanish TV network Movistar.

“Our objective for this group was to qualify and now we have achieved that, it is the most important thing and now we can move onto our next objective.

“We have one more match to see if we can finish top of our group and we will now think of this.

“I am happy right now and I am enjoying my football.”
