France forward, Antoine Griezmann has come out to say that football fans should expect a new-look Atletico Madrid this season. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the team is trying to be more proactive on the ball henceforth by playing out from the back more often, and he is sure the club currently has the players to help with doing that.
Griezmann added that he wants to make history at Atletico Madrid, so lifting a trophy this season would be amazing.
His words, “This is what we’re trying. We’re gonna try and to come out from the back more and have more ball possession. The profile of the players we have will help to do that. Obviously, our coach is getting used to the team we have and we’ve been changing things during our training sessions. We’ve been changing the way we play. I think the effort and the hard work for all members of the team will never change but the way we deal with the ball may change and that will be seen in the matches.”
“I want to make history at Atletico. So to lift silverware would be something very important and it would be a dream come true. It would be fantastic if I could win both La Liga and the Champions League.”
On losing the World Cup final, “I was upset, but, then after a week, I was happy for those three because I knew them for a long time. Before the World Cup and during the World Cup, I used to joke with Rodrigo [De Paul] and it was fun, the fact that both of us got to the final. I used to say things like ‘Oh, good luck’ and we had a few laughs before we went to Qatar and during the World Cup and in the end they were the champions. It was painful but it was also fun. We’ve spoken about it here over the last few weeks.”
