Grateful Griezmann: 'I'm lucky to have learned from Cholo Simeone'
- The 27-year-old thanks the Argentine specialist who has made him the player he is.
- The Frenchman claims there's never a day off at Atletico & he's learned what it means to work hard there.
Antoine Griezmann has finally completed a much-anticipated transfer from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona as the Catalans have triggered the Frenchman's €120m release clause.
The 28-year-old has sat down with the Blaugrana's official website representatives and has discussed his Camp Nou move in 10 key topics, one of which naturally is his former club.
Despite all the controversy surrounding the striker's Wanda Metropolitano exit, Griezman's feelings towards Los Colchoneros and their long-term leader Diego Simeone haven't changed:
"I am lucky to have learned from Cholo Simeone. Thanks to him, I’ve been playing at a very high level.
"At Atletico, there's never a day off. It’s very physical and there’s a lot of hard work on tactics. Nobody can let their guard down."
