Antoine Griezmann’s debut (30) with Atlético de Madrid was not successful, despite the final victory against Espanyol (1-2, 4th matchday in La Liga). The 2018 world champion was widely criticized at the end of the meeting. But Diego Simeone does not hold it against him and explains what he expects from his French striker.
“The other day, there was a lack of intensity, of play, but not because of one player, because of the whole team. What we want from Griezmann is that he is the footballer he has always been, with quality, with goals … He will have to be ready according to what the team needs, that either for 30 or for 90 minutes “, warned the Argentinian technician at a press conference on the eve of the reception of FC Porto (1st day of the Champions League). The message got through.
